Visit our Blue Penguin Colony which is situated a very short drive from us in our Harbour area. The little blue penguins come ashore at dusk and leave for sea again at dawn. In peak season (October to January) there can be as many as 200 birds arriving each evening. The Colony has a covered grandstand seating arrangement for you to view in comfort.

Visit the Yellow-eyed Penguin Colony on Bushy Beach Road which is a short drive from us. The yellow-eyed penguins are very rare but they come ashore late afternoon. There is a very good walkway and viewing platform for you to see these birds, sometimes at a very close range.

Take a short stroll down Thames Street past our fabulous Opera House and view our beautifully restored Oamaru Stone Buildings. Wander down to our Historic Precinct which contains New Zealand's largest collection of Victorian architecture. Have a drink at the Criterion Hotel, or see a range of artists and craftspeople at work.

Join our popular Penguin Express bus tour which will pick you up from your motel room and drive you to both penguin colonies and through the historic precinct, this tour is very informative. Book with us!

A 35 minute drive south will take you to our unique Moeraki Boulders, or a little further south to the Moeraki Village where you can visit Fleur's Place for coffee or a meal.

Head north up to the Waitaki River and lakes for a spot of fishing or a picnic, or just have a leisurely day in Oamaru visiting some of our cafes after a few hours shopping. We know that when you visit Oamaru you will be pleasantly surprised at what we have to offer!
