Vote for Oamaru

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.

It is one of five towns selected for Seven Sharp’s focus on sharp towns.

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.

    Meh…. Vote Te Anau.


  2. Sorry Ele; Ohakune is the go. Those chocolate eclairs from Nation’s Bakery are out of this world, and cheap too!


  3. Mr E says:

    Clearly KS has not been to Te Anau

    Nor to Oamaru which has eclairs and many other delights of the culinary, cultural, natural, architectural, sporting, historic . . . kind.


  5. Until you’ve devoured a giant-sized Nation’s eclair (for the princely sum of $1.80) you truly haven’t lived Ele 😀

    @ Mr E – not since 1981.
