Steampunk HQ

Oamaru has been the unofficial world capital of Steampunk since 2009, when the first Steampunk Festival was held in the town. Steampunk HQ is the repository for a large selection of steampunk-themed artworks, where the otherworldly visions of local artists and those from further afield will certainly give you something to ponder. Be sure not to miss the Infinity Portal, and a gold coin inserted in the steam train at the entrance is well worth the investment!

While nothing quite compares with seeing it in person, this virtual tour of Steampunk HQ courtesy of Virtual Waitaki offers a taste of what awaits you on your visit:
