Establishing Oamaru as a heritage destination by bringing alive and preserving New Zealand’s best complete collection of Victorian buildings.
WHAT WE DO
The Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust works to ensure the preservation, enhancement, renovation and appropriate redevelopment of the Victorian Precinct, the town of Oamaru and the North Otago countryside, its historic buildings generally, streets, supporting townscape and harbour environs.
To preserve, develop and improve buildings and features of general public amenity or historic interest or beauty and to promote high standards in architecture, management, building and resource management planning.
Preserving Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct and developing the buildings and streets into a destination locals embrace, visitors want to experience and which drives economic growth and community pride.
