Blue Penguin Colony
See the worlds smallest penguins in their natural environment.
Open every day of the year, it is Oamaru's largest tourist attraction with over 75,000 visitors per year.
Some 60 million years ago, the concretions started forming on the ocean floor. Centuries of coastline erosion have revealed a spectacular view of these curiously large spherical boulders
Oamaru is a gorgeous harbour town centrally located 3 hours south of Christchurch or 90 minutes north of Dunedin. Visitors can explore museums, shops and galleries within some of New Zealand’s best 19th century architecture.
Soak in the view... and unwind in summer or winter, by day or night. Private hot tubs cleaned & filled with fresh mountain water, no chemicals added. Adjust the temperature to your comfort, sit back to relax in the Omarama landscape.
