    Very close to the blue penguins’ route to home. Recommend to choose premium for much better view, but still need to arrive earlier for getting a better seat. Remember to wear a wind jacket for night session as the it’s quite cold there. It’s a pity that you cannot take photos there for protection of the penguins.

What To Expect

Immerse yourself in the rich history and enchanting wildlife of Oamaru by booking this combo ticket to Whitestone City and Blue Penguin Colony! Get to know this unique New Zealand town by visiting its top heritage attraction, Whitestone City, which offers visitors a glimpse of what life was like for migrants who settled here in the late 19th century. You’ll enter from the seaside entrance of a restored warehouse and walk across a street lined with period barber and chemist shops, newspaper and architect offices, and even a replica of the iconic Criterion Hotel. You’ll eventually end up in large activity area where you can ride a carousel with four penny-farthing bicycles, play games, and even hang out at the period saloon. When you're ready to step back to present-day Oamaru, head over to the Blue Penguin Colony, home of the smallest penguin in the world. With day entry ticket, you can go inside the viewing room for a chance to see the penguins up close in their burrows. You can choose the evening entry ticket if you want to see the penguins swim ashore and head to their nests in an old stone quarry near the waterfront. Get as close as possible to these cute creatures with a premium ticket!

    Baishi Town, you can dress back to the era to take pictures, very happy to play, the blue penguin is really cute, there are fur sea lions on the day to match the feet. But the seaside is really cold at night, and the clothes have to be worn enough.

    Recommended to sit on the VIP seat, the price is not much higher, but very close to the penguin baby, see more than 90 penguins returning to the nest that night! Baishi Xiaoxuan staff is friendly and has a lot of shadows and is worth visiting!
