Smartphone App Ready for Download
January 7, 2016
There is a great deal to see and do in the Oamaru area, and quite a few people use Oamaru as a base from which to explore Dunedin and Waimate, both of which are within an hour or so by car. To help our guests to plan their visit to this part of New Zealand, we have created a handy, free, smartphone app that will help you to find your way to some of our favourite sights in this part of the country. Interested in visiting the wineries of the Waitaki Valley? The app will help you get there with turn-by-turn directions. Wildlife fan? The app will tell you about the famed Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony, as well as the less well known Waimate wallaby sanctuary, the Orokonui eco-sanctuary in Waitati, and the yellow-eyed penguin colony at Katiki. As an added feature, there are a few suggested itineraries that will guide you on several multifaceted tours of the area, including recommendations of places to eat while out and about.
