Directions from nearest town

Presence on Harbour is located at no. 1 Harbour St, in the Historic Precinct of Oamaru, just a stone's throw away from the historic harbour and the finish photo frame of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail. In fact you need to cycle past our shop to make it to the finish! Once you have completed the Trail and shared the mandatory congratulatory photos on your social media, take a break and meander back through the Precinct, not forgetting to pop in and reward yourself with an Alps 2 Ocean T-shirt from us in the process!

We have been established since October 2013 in the heart of the Historic Victorian Precinct in Ōamaru, Waitaki, in Harbour Street at the end of the A2O Cycle Trail, on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island.

The store is a former agricultural warehouse, so we have an amazing space for browsing in person, but if you can’t do that at the moment, just get a feel of some of our great New Zealand made and designed gift ideas, including Alps to Ocean tees and more, that we have on our website,

You must visit us to see the unique situation of the store and the wide variety of NZ made gifts, clothing and artwork from NZ artists that we have to show you, including Kiwiana and NZ icons, like Buzzy Bee and Tin Man, once you have finished the A2O Cycle Trail. Our website just shows a small collection of what’s on offer.

So do come and explore…… Ōamaru and the Waitaki

Our local, friendly team look forward to seeing you soon when you arrive in Ōamaru – look out for Ruby, our VW Beetle, parked in the street, we are just around the corner!
