Oamaru used to be a small town you had to pass through to get from Christchurch to Dunedin.
It’s still in the same place but it’s becoming a destination.
The little blue penguins, yellow eyed penguins, historic buildings, steam punk, good restaurants, the Vanished World fossil trail, Alps to Ocean cycle trail and many other natural and (wo)man made attractions have made it a destination in its own right.
Oamaru will feature this evening and your vote will help it become the Sharpest Town.
The winning town will be revisited by the Seven Sharp team for the filming of a live show.
