Default Oamaru / Timaru anyone?...

Arriving very soon on my own.. for now
Just wondering if there was anyone in the area?

Im easy going, i wouldn't mind if someone shared with me their local knowledge etc.
Cuppa tea, cofee or a beer would be good too.

There was a few about. Is Oamaru or Timaru? I'll try and find 'em for you.

We're up for it but you'd have to do a day or more of driving just to get here

We've recently 'wwoofed' at a campsite there, by the river mouth. The guy who owns it is a nice aussie guy so if you're desperate for friends you could find him!

as for recommendations - there's a restaurant out on the main rd (north of oamaru) which was voted the best in nz by some magazine - we only had morning tea but it was v.nice!

and the tasting platters at the cheese factory were nice too!

yeah not v.helpful but hope that you're settling in and finding your feet xx

ah sorry it turned out that you were the only one!

This was the campsite we worked at - http://www.campingoamaru.co.nz/index.html - you could drop in and say hi to Derek!


Or we found a funk night in one of the bars on the old street, it was organised by the retro clothes shop round the corner, they were all v.friendly! x
