Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • I love public gardens and this one was an unexpected gem. Cycled through it at the end of the Alps2ocean cycle trail, and have walked through too. Peaceful as!
  • Very nicely laid out gardens with bird enclosure. Beautiful water features and a great playground for kids perfect for a party. There us a band rotundra perfect for that perfect wedding photo.
  • Great walk around with the family. Awesome park the kids liked
  • Great place to relax and have the children out exploring
  • These gardens are gorgeous and beautifully maintained. Such a lovely spot for a walk or a picnic. A number of different areas, each very unique.
