Omarama :A Mountain Community in the Middle of Everywhere”

New Zealand is now Alert Level 1

Omarama is a small mountain community at the junction of State Highways 8 and 83, near the southern end of the Mackenzie Basin, in the South Island of New Zealand. Omarama is in the Waitaki District, Otago.

Omarama is well known to Glider pilots who come to soar the skies and fish the rivers. The Alps to Ocean cycleway passes through Omarama, making it a good central location to base yourself while making the most of the cycle tracks.
