Oamaru Harbour



This Victorian/Edwardian deep water port survives in a relatively intact and unchanged state, representative of a site type that has generally disappeared.

Its key component, Sumpter Wharf, was constructed in 1884 specifically for the refrigerated steamers designed to run between New Zealand and Britain.

Recognising its national significance, the NZHPT registered the Harbour and its environs in 2004.
