The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 12 Dunedin, NZ
To Oamaru to meet New Zealand's number one church organ expert Dr. Ron Newton, who very kindly invited us back to his home for lunch. It was a pleasure to meet him, his wife and children.
In search for a campground in Dunedin, we inadvertently find the steepest street in the country and balk at driving the campervan down it. We find a camping spot in South Dunedin do some laundry, have dinner and settle in for the night.
"Oamaru is a coastal town located 116km north of Dunedin and servicing Rural North Otago in the South Island of New Zealand. The Town is famous for it's superb collection of historical Whitestone buildings, and it's rich Victorian Heritage. The central row of trees enhance fine examples of the beautiful limestone buildings along the main street. The Forrester Art Gallery, the Museum, the Opera house and the Historical Precinct, with it's fully renovated Victorian hotel, the Criterion, all contribute to this unique town's character."
