Omakau Station (SC Only)


3 from 1 user.


Otago Central Rail Trail, Omakau, South Island.


Parking area next to the Otago Central Rail Trail. Freedom camping permitted in CERTIFIED SELF-CONTAINED VEHICLES ONLY. Construction brought the railway to Omakau in 1904. Prior to that the Manuherikia Valley's main population centre was Ophir, a gold mining town 3km away and a worthwhile side trip when biking the Trail. Omakau Station became one of New Zealand's biggest stock handling stations, loading almost 120 thousand head of stock in 1962 alone. The stockyards were located on what is now vacant land between the still remaining goods shed and the main road. Self-contained vehicles must clearly display NZS5465:2001 certification. Take all rubbish with you and leave no trace. Keep New Zealand clean. Always use the toilet in your vehicle or a public toilet.

We were the only ones here. Pretty quiet. Toilets and shops are 3mins drive in the town.
