Very nice area. Oamaru is great for day excursion trips from Dunedin. A lovely old town. A lot of history.

New Zealand is full of wonderful gardens and these are among the best we have visited to date. There are a number of different garden styles and some great sculpture throughout the gardens, and we enjoyed strolling through here each day.
