Back to the Future
Oamaru is a Victorian town with a twist. Townspeople actually wear vests, trousers, wide-brimmed hats, and long dresses. There are shops where you can find a bookbinder working away with a whale bone. You can partake in cucumber sandwiches, tea, and a slice of delectably sinful cake. You can visit a gallery of time travelers and laser ray guns fashioned byVictorian inventors at the Steampunked Exhibition. And if that's not enough, you can watch blue and yellow-eyed penguins stumble home after a day at sea.
