unfortunately closed. we were looking forward to stay here as we were in a campervan and tis was close to where you catch a tour to see penguins at night. Not sure how long this will be closed for. there are few freedom camping spots in oamaru and certainly nothing near where you can walk to the penguins. The other holiday park in oamaru is rediculously expensive so we had no choice to move on
We stopped here for 2 nights, one of them being New Years Eve. Great site overlooking the extremely picturesque harbour. We spent New Years Eve watching the penguins swim ashore opposite the site and then clamber up the boat ramp and waddle across the road. A truly memorable way to see out the old year and see in the new. The lady that runs the site was extremely helpful and should be commended for the way in which she protects the penguins and helps people to watch them and understand them. A big thank you to her.
This is a basic site with limited amenities. It is however great for the penguin colony viewing and Oamaru at large. There is a great kids playground next door. Owner was very friendly in recommending places to visit.
What a spot, we stumbled across this gem. Great location excellent price grassy powered sites, clean hot showers BBQ area and camp kitchen with dining area. This place is located right next to old town with bars and restaurants, you can just walk across the real at dusk and watch the penguins come ashore. There is a great cheese factory about 15 minutes up the road, every thing is in easy walking distance so no need to drive anywhere. The on site manager sorry i forgot her name was extremely helpful would recommend this place to anyone
Stopped here in our camper van for an overnight stay to visit the Blue Penguin Sanctuary and were impressed by the welcome we received, the cleanliness and the tremendous views and sun rise. It to be missed 💕
