Oamaru Public Gardens, Oamaru

Garden
Survey the selection of plant and animal life while taking a leisurely walk at Oamaru Public Gardens, conveniently placed right in the middle of town. The gardens elements include a rhodendron dell and azalea lawn, as well as an aviary and peacock house. A rose garden tops it all off as the main centerpiece. Several ornaments adorn the gardens, but the highlight is the elegant Italian Carrara marble fountain as you enter the lawn from the main entrance. Also keep an eye out for the Wonderland statue, a feature of the gardens since 1926. A children's play area makes this a family-friendly spot. Put Oamaru Public Gardens and other Oamaru attractions into our Oamaru vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.
