闲庭漫步30This is a place to experience a peculiar feeling. When I first saw it, I thought it was an industrial museum, because there were some industrial relics such as steam locomotives stacked at the door. After I went in and read the introduction, I realized that this is the headquarters of steampunk. The so-called steampunk is based on the background of the Victorian era and originated from science fiction themes from the 1980s to the early 1990s. In this magical world, the early technology of the industrial revolution and the power of steam are infinitely mythological and applied everywhere. A gentleman in a top hat drives a steam locomotive to roam the sky. Haha, I really gained knowledge. After the visit, I feel that my overall quality has improved again.

Seashore
pxy0705Oamaruland Penguin Conservation Center, where tens of thousands of wolf brother penguins live, which is a very precious species in the penguin family. Everyone can't go to the island to visit, they can only watch them from a distance on the observation platform. The entire seashore is densely packed, which is really spectacular.

闲庭漫步30Oamaru should be a place with historical accumulation. Although the development history here is not long, the locals can pay special attention to retaining various buildings with specific historical significance. Therefore, the entire city looks older and has a sense of historical vicissitudes. After seeing these buildings, visitors can arouse their curiosity to learn more about local history.
