Autumn Wonders

February 8, 2022

Aurora AustralisAutumn is the ideal time to visit Oamaru and the wonderful Waitaki (and, don’t tell anyone, but it’s when we tell our friends from overseas to come and visit). Not only is the weather generally stable and predictable, but it is complemented by crystal-clear nights, perfect to gaze up at the sky and enjoy the spectacle of the stars shining down on us. If you’d like to get away from it all and experience autumnal Oamaru for yourself, we have a package available that includes all the following:

  • Two nights in a superior guest suite at Pen-y-bryn Lodge
  • Bottle of local wine awaiting you in your room
  • Full cooked breakfast each morning
  • Pre-dinner canapés and cocktails in our Drawing Room each evening
  • Three-Course gourmet table d’hôte dinner at Pen-y-bryn on your arrival night
  • Use of our 10″ telescope (weather conditions permitting) for stargazing each evening

With this package you’ll have time to venture up the Waitaki Valley where you might observe the grape harvest for the next vintage, or wander down to Moeraki and the other coastal villages to enjoy our marine wildlife. Or you can of course just relax at the lodge–it’s all up to you!

The package price for this is $1350, inclusive of GST. To make your booking, contact us by email or phone us on (03) 434 7939.
