"See the famous Omaru Stone" Oamaru Things to Do Tip by Duffelgirl

Oamaru Things to Do: 34 reviews and 47 photos


Omaru is famous for its lovely creamy limestone buildings. I am not a particular expert on the building material front, but I thought this stone was gorgeous!!
Omaru also boasts the second widest bridge in the southern hemisphere - see photo (it was too wide for my camera!).
