Best 10 bucks I've spent in a long time! Very weird and original concept and the more you look the more you see!
The out-of-character Portal lightbox was an amazing bonus to the whole experience.

Really did not know what to expect but after checking it out by the front door we decided to spring for the NZ 10 pp fee. What a gas!!! This is a local artist constructed interpretation of last 19th/early 20th century sci-fi in some wild...More
Steampunk is an odd (to me) esthetic that is half Mad Max, half Queen Victoria. Steampunk HQ is an museum-like attraction that features a lot of what appear to be rusty, decaying pieces of metal and old electronics shaped into weird and wonderful works of...More

I have heard that shore excursions to Oamaru are about to start on some cruise liners so check that out. If not, you would have to rent a car in Dunedin and drive the 1 1/2 hours to Oamaru. The drive is scenic especially if you take the coastal roads as suggested prior. Definitely stop off at Moeraki boulders. Great eating places on the way include Fleur's Place iconic seafood restaurant at Moeraki, Vanessa's Cafe at Hampden and Coast Cafe at Kakanui. Oamaru is definitely worth spending 2-3 hours if you have the time. Make your way to the Harbour area park up and walk. There's so much to experience including the artisan galleries in Harbour St (a beautifully preserved Victorian Precinct), Steampunk HQ is a must; a retro futuristic look at a world run by steam powered machinery. You can even hire Pedal Punk four wheel cycles & cruise down to the beautiful Harbour and see the Steampunk Playground and Blue Penguin Colony. That should still give you enough time for the 1 1/2 hour drive back to Dunedin. Look forward to hearing if you come to Oamaru, I think you'll love it. Take care. Jan :)

yes its wheelchair accessible BUT you have to be very careful ... as its dark inside ... lots of twists and turns and when you get outside .. the ground is small stones ... a bit of a challenge ... hope that helps :)
