Our guests are never short of activities when they arrive in Oamaru.

One of the main attractions in Oamaru are the penguins. There are two species of penguins which can be found around the local coastline, with the Little Blue penguins being found within 5 minutes walk from your front door!

Other activities that our guests have enjoyed include exploring the beautiful victorian buildings and architecture, driving to Moeraki to find the diverse wildlife and iconic "Moeraki boulders" (as pictured on this page).

Our guests come from all over the globe whether it be Europe, America, Asia or from within NZ. No matter where they come from, they always end up making new friends at our Hostel (usually after bonding over searching for penguins!)
