Oamaru and Waitaki Valley Attractions
When in Oamaru, tourist attractions we recommend visiting include the Blue Penguin Colony where you can view the world's smallest penguins, in their natural environment. Other attractions include the Moeraki Boulders (30 mins south of Oamaru), which is well worth a visit. These highly spherical boulders located on a beach near Moeraki are fascinating. When driving through the Waitaki Valley, we recommend visiting the Benmore Dam.
