Great viewing spot for Oamaru
Feb 2021
The town of Oamaru from here is not stunning, but is interesting. The bay and outlook is lovely though. It is actually a lovely town when you get into the streets and look at the beautiful architecture. The people are also friendly.

Saw Some Penguins!
Oct 2020
Saw some blue penguins here in the evening! It was a bit sad to see others forgetting to keep their distance from the wildlife. The harbor was beautiful at sunset and in the day time. Highly recommend a stop.

A great Prom walk
Mar 2020
A long and wide promenade walk (Or run) from town to the penguin reserve. Lots to see out over the harbour along with shag pier and notice boards telling of the history of the town. Look out for the steampunk swingpark as well.

A lovely area to have a picnic. Plenty of room to park a motorhome and brew youself and cuppa, a nice cafe if in a car. Nice clean toilets, BBQ's to use and a garden area with play equipment for the kids.
Nice.

Spectacular views
Dec 2019 • Solo
Pop up to the lookout for spectacular views all around Oamaru. Particularly good for that special sunrise photo when there is a bit of red cloud action. Better still take your breakfast and coffee and soak it all in!!

Good place to hang around for a little walk, a snack or a coffee break
Nov 2019
In the harbour are several fishing boats and yatches. There is a jetty where hobby fishers are angling. Some times a seal is swimming in the harbour basin and when the waves are heigh enough they spray huge fountains over the concrete harbour wall.

A quaint historic harbour

We love Oamaru harbour, always lots to see...a walk around is good exercise and if done in the evening the chance of seeing a Little Blue Penguin is quite good!
