Coastal North Otago
Thirty minutes south of Oamaru, Hampden offers a beachside camping ground, a few stores, a popular cafe, tavern and fish and chip shops serving the freshest fish on the coast. Stop for a crayfish in season, or view the unique outdoor sculpture park. Head to the beach where there is a playground for the kids and even a sizeable skate ramp!
Grab a huge cone ice-cream from the Hampden store - best enjoyed at the beach.
