Welcome to Culture Waitaki, the collaborative home of the Forrester Gallery, Waitaki Museum and Archive, Waitaki District Libraries and Oamaru Opera House. Together we represent the cultural heritage of the Waitaki District, providing spaces and support for performing and visual arts, natural and social history, reading, literacy, information and knowledge in our community. We welcome everyone to discover what we have on offer. You will find us along Thames Street in Oamaru, just off state highway one – three hours drive south of Christchurch and and hour and a half drive north of Dunedin. Our facilities are easy to find and all within walking distance of each other.
