Oamaru Heritage and Steampunk


If Victorian architecture and/or steampunk is your thing then you must visit Oamaru. The town has the best preserved Victorian architecture in the country and is considered to the world capital of steampunk. If you're wondering what the heck steampunk is then google it, it's a whole new world of the weird and wonderful. You'll have to get your timing right to visit Michael O'Brien the Bookbinder in the Victorian Precinct, he's only open from 2pm-5pm weekdays unless you book in for one of his book binding courses. His work is stunning and a rare craft worth witnessing. He also gratefully accepts donations of single malt whisky. Respect. Plus he's also got an achingly lovely cottage for overnight rental.
