    Being at the beginning of the Waitaki Valley, Oamaru township isnt far away to explore with the old heritage, steampunk, little blue penguins and more. Heading up the valley are near by river, lakes, wineries and more. We are a English speaking family and can benefit by learning both ways. There is also always something on the go if you felt like joining in social activities and with the neighborhood.
