There is a lot more to explore in Oamaru including little blue penguin and yellow eyed penguin colonies, vintage train rides, attractive gardens and the popular Whitestone Cheese factory. Oamaru's Riverstone Kitchen was named New Zealand's Restaurant of the year 2010/2011. Oamaru is also the birthplace of a number of famous New Zealanders, including one of our best known writers, Janet Frame.
However, as we were staying in Dunedin we didn't have time to investigate everything before making the drive back....a good excuse to return to Oamaru some time, I say!
