On the wast coast of New Zealand just below Timaru and 120km north of Dunedin lies Oamaru, a small coastal community. This makes an ideal point to stop for a night between the two if traveling south from Christchurch, since there is a sheltered harbour.

Cruising the region

This is a day stopover point right on the South Island, East Coast. Not a lot more to tell really.

Communication

Navigation

To enter Oamaru Harbour needs local knowledge, but I can give you an idea. Go into the Bay immediately to the north of the Harbour. Come back up close to the Holmes Wharf breakwater. Nip close round it's end and you are in. Don't believe any transit marks until they are verified by a reliable local.

Berthing Oamaru has a man-made harbour.

Call a fisherman up on Ch 62. Choose an anchorage, holding is good. The town is fascinating and worth a visit.
