New Book on Oamaru and the Waitaki Released

IMG_0029Oamaru and the Waitaki District are easily among the most beautiful parts of New Zealand (in our humble opinion), yet there has not been a corresponding volume of books on the area available for visitors or locals to purchase. Fortunately for them, the owners of Pen-y-bryn Lodge have taken it upon themselves to address the situation, and have released a 100-page volume to fill this gap.

The book, which they have titled simply Oamaru and the Waitaki: Home to Historic Pen-y-bryn Lodge, is full of stunning photography that they mostly shot themselves, together with a short history of the district and descriptions of the area’s distinctive features. At the rear of the book they provide a brief history of Pen-y-bryn itself, together with a photographic tour of several of the estate’s rooms, all culminating with a few recipes that their guests have asked them to share.

Copies of the book are available for sale for $40 at Pen-y-bryn as well as at several businesses in Oamaru (including Oamaru Paper Plus, Steam Café, Presence on Harbour, Art on Tyne and the Oamaru i-Site), and an electronic version is available for purchase through the Apple iBooks store as well.
