This is a seriously amazing place. I just love the way the good folk of Oamaru have looked after and encouraged their heritage.

I especially liked the welcome to Orclanders post Covid on the back of an old truck.. just lovely.
We stopped in for lunch one the way from Geraldine and Dunedin.

Its really interesting looking at the records of the Criterion Hotel which reveal that one of the past owners were the McLeod brothers who owned it for some time. Fiona’s Dad’s family came from Timaru and Geraldine. It would be interesting to see if there was a connection there.
A great spot with plenty of great Cafe’s and things to see and do.
