Ōamaru Lookout Point

Ōamaru Lookout Point is a brassed park on the high point of Cape Wanbrow, 100 metres above downtown and Friendly Bay. The easiest access is along Tyne Street, which continues from the south end of Thames Street, then a left turn into Tamar Street. It is a little over 500 metres, but parking is on the lookout if you prefer to drive.

Dawn and dusk are the best times for the view, but the lookout also provides access to walking and mountain bike tracks that run to the east over the cape and down to the coast at Second Beach. To the north is the little blue penguin colony.
