Whitestone City

Located in the heart of Victorian Oamaru and fit-out in the style of a colonial town, where activities, displays, merchants, and an array of people in costume provide a glimpse of what Oamaru would have been like in the town’s early days.




Set in an original grain store that was built in 1882, and located within New Zealand’s most complete streetscape of Victorian commercial buildings, Whitestone City is a central heritage hub and a must-do while in Oamaru.

Full of live displays, video imaging and interactive features which immerse visitors in a living, breathing past, Whitestone City is not your run-of-the-mill heritage attraction.

Open 7 days a week!
Main entry on seaward side of building.
