It's FAMOUS BECAUSE It's GOOD
WAITAKI & ŌAMARU
Just as geology holds the memories of our Earth, landmarks show where communities mark a time. The Waitaki is a rich study of landmarks where culture, heritage, wildlife, and food offerings can be discovered. Take your time to explore every corner — there’s a little something for everyone. Bike the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, fish in the Waitaki lakes, jet boat, gallery hop, have a look at the museums, and raise a glass of fine wine to the district’s award-winning dining! From the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean, a journey through the Waitaki District is good for the young, good for the old, and good for every visitor in between.
