Seven Sharp went on the hunt for New Zealand’s sharpest town and found it in North Otago.
Oamaru has taken the Sharpest Town crown.
More than 10,000 people voted and the winner, Oamaru, was announced on Monday’s Seven Sharp.
The Sharpest Town, as well as being decked in the glory of the title, will also play host to the Seven Sharp team for a live show. . .
It was a decisive win in spite of the tough competition from Motueka, Ohakune, Okaihau and Te Anau.
Thank you to all of you who responded to my pleas to vote for Oamaru I hope you’ll take the opportunity to follow up with a visit.
You can see some of the charms of the town and wider Waitaki District, here among which is the annual Victorian heritage celebrations which will be held from the 14th to the 17th of November this year.
