Nestled in a broad basin between mountain ranges, Omarama is well known to glider pilots. Come here to soar in the skies and fish in the fast rivers.
Glider pilots love the air above Omarama, a small township near the southern end of the Mackenzie Basin. World and national gliding records are regularly broken here, as pilots make the most of the clear, empty skies and accommodating updrafts. Nearby attractions include the Clay Cliffs, Lake Ohau Forest, Benmore Power Station and Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, which is about an hour's drive away. Omarama activities include gliding with experienced local pilots, golf, horse riding and fly fishing. You'll know you've arrived when you see the large merino sheep statue.
Functional facts: Approx. population 230, good range of accommodation, basic shops and services.
