This area of Oamaru town is definitely worth a visit. Park up then Come for a stroll down the Main Street in the Victorian section. Start at the steam punk museum. There are lots of fascinating shops to visit or poke your head into. It is child friendly as well as suitable for adults. There are a few places to grab a drink.

This place is truly beautiful if you appreciate old buildings and history this is a must stop and see! I didn’t stop long as it was getting dark and I was headed back to Christchurch. My next trip I will be stopping here to check it out properly, old buildings are amazing

Oamaru's Victorian Precinct is an impressive architecture building and it is worth just wandering around as it is full off shops, galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Oamaru has some beautiful old buildings in its Victorian Precinct and it is worth spending time just having a wander and admiring the historic heritage on offer. The Precinct has many cafes and shops throughout - unfortunately we were there at a quiet time of year, and early in the week, and a number of them were not open. Hint: if travelling outside of peak season, visit Thursday to Sunday and you will experience all of what is on offer.

Well worth a visit with lots of interesting sites. Obviously the steam punk headquarters is the main attraction but in this precinct there are still lots of other art galleries and other interesting sites to see. It is worth stopping to have a look
