Omarama is a small township situated at the junction of State Highway 83 and State Highway 8.

Omarama means "Place of Light" in Maori language.

We did a brief stop for toilet break on our way to Lake Tekapo for the night.

Eventhough it is a small township with population of about 400 people, there are accommodations well catered for visitors ranging from hotels and motels, homestays, camping grounds and backpackers.

There are also pub, restaurants, winery, take away food outlets, a general store, tourist shops, and petrol stations servicing the whole town.

Activities like gliding, camping, skiing, wine tasting, fishing, kayaking, cycling, horse trekking, tramping, visiting Benmore Dam, golf and scenice flights can be arranged from Omarama.
