Oamaru On The Way (On Fire)

Oamaru On Fire festival Harbour StreetOn our way south last weekend (Queens Birthday weekend), we stopped off in Oamaru. The Oamaru On Fire event/festival thing was on on the Friday night and there was a steampunk thing going all weekend. Oamaru has extraordinary Victorian streetscapes and amazing old buildings. And a determination to make the most of them, most recently via steampunk. The Friday night event was extraordinary. Like nothing else I’ve ever seen – which is fun in itself.

On the Saturday we enjoyed a more leisurely wander/browse around the streets and the galleries and the shops – and the ice-cream place (in Harbour Street where he makes his own).
