    Once a railway line connecting Clyde to Middlemarch, the Otago Rail Trail is a scenic trail spanning 150km. The railway line was originally constructed over a period of 16 years between 1891 and 1907. The Rail Trail was developed by the Dept of Conservation (DOC) in partnership with the Otago Central Rail Trail Trust and was opened in 2000 as a public reserve – (no entry fee required).

  • Oamaru – One of New Zealand’s Greatest Treasures and Hidden SecretsOamaru – One of New Zealand’s Greatest Treasures and Hidden Secrets
    Submitted by wordofmouth on October 9th, 2010
    If you are not a surfer, sunbather, climber or boatie, Oamaru is possibly the best destinations in New Zealand. Standing on the cobbled corner of Harbour and Tyne Street, I am cast back 130 years in time among a wealth of historic architectural treasures. There is no evidence of anything other than Victorian architecture. I amble down the lane with its old rail line still running down the side, where trains picked up sacks or grain to be loaded on to bowsprits, spars and fully rigged triple-masters on Sumpter wharf in the harbour.
