The meaning behind the town’s name translates to “the place of maru” (compare with Timaru). Oamaru’s public buildings have been constructed with the use of the local limestone (Oamaru Stone).
Oamaru’s white stone townscape is considered to hold some of the best preserved heritage buildings in New Zealand. It's also the Steampunk capital of New Zealand - the Steampunk museum is worth a visit.
