Oamaru Lookout Point

Oamaru Lookout Point provides stunning views over the seaside township of Oamaru.

You can drive right up to the top so it is the perfect spot to take in the view and enjoy a picnic.

I did walk up from town, which probably took me about 25 minutes. It is quite steep so wouldn’t recommend walking unless reasonably fit.

The walk back down – very steep

The Lookout Point can also be used as an access point for walking and cycling trails.

Oamaru Lookout Point is located at 1 Tamar Street, South Hill, Oamaru.
