Oamaru may be the end of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail but don’t let it be the end to your Cycle Journey!
Home to some of New Zealand’s best kept heritage buildings, the Victorian Precinct, and Blue Penguin Colony, there are so many reasons to spend that extra bit longer in the white-stone landscape of Oamaru after your Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Journey.
For a great finish, take a photo at the Alps 2 Ocean photo frame at Oamaru’s Friendly Bay!
Step back in time and explore, shop and dress up in the beautiful Victorian Precinct of Oamaru.
Steam Punk HQ
A landmark in itself, this quirky museum of machinery, contraptions and special effects is a must visit.
Blue Penguin Colony
Head down to the Blue Penguin Colony just before sunset to watch the little blue and yellow-eyed penguins come to shore.
Stock up with fresh produce or simply enjoy the community spirit at the Oamaru Farmers market. Open every Sunday between 9:30am and 1pm.
Relax and recover after a long ride at one of Oamaru’s many quality beauty spas.
