People who travel to Oamaru often notice that most of the streets in the town take their names from rivers in England. These include Thames Street where you will find the main retail and commercial areas; State Highway 1 follows Severn Street, and historic commercial buildings feature along Tyne Street.
A colony of little blue penguins lives on the harbour, and yellow-eyed penguins just south of the town attract eco-tourists. Penguins occasionally like to live below buildings by the beach, including the town's music club, The Penguin Club.
