Nestled in a broad basin between mountain ranges, Omarama is a small town at the junction of State Highways 8 and 83. It sits near the southern end of the Mackenzie Basin, in the South Island.

It is well known to glider pilots and anglers. They come here to soar in the wide-open skies and fish in fast-flowing rivers. Omarama is in the Waitaki District, near its namesake river, and the Ahuriri River is a short distance to the north.

Omarama means the place of light. And you will understand why when you look to the skies. The crystal clear air is so pure and the nights so black that the star-gazing opportunities here are a once in a lifetime experience.
