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

We visited the precinct for an hour or so were able to park in the middle of it guess that is not the norm, Few photo opportunities and some interesting shops brought some sweets from one, Was able to stop at a bar for a drink but unfortunately only limited outdoor seating so wasn't able to take in the ambiance of the area. Worth a visit for an hour or two.
