Off the beaten track.... I'd say you are a bit off the beaten track here, you can find the Parkside Limestone Quarry in Weston, Oamaru, check out http://www.oamarustone.co.nz/ for tour information. Worth a look if you are interested to see how the Oamaru Whitestone is cut out from the Earth, in the past and as it is quarried today. This is the same type of stone that the buildings in Bath, England were constructed from; The Oamaru Historic Precinct has also been built of Oamaru Whitestone, which emulates British architecture and history. Oamaru Whitestone is a soft stone, a favourite medium for sculptors, you will also see various sculpture scattered about the quarry, after the tour take a picnic and relax in the gardens, where you can wander about the sculptures. The Garden is used also as a Wedding and Function venue.
