“The Waitaki team helped me from the beginning with everything, through them I met new friends, they helped me find legal advice and different opportunities to work at events so that people can get to know my artistic works: I am so thankful I found them when I came to Oamaru.”

When you are new to town you will have many questions where to go and what to do to organise your new life.

We are here to help you feel at home, direct you to the most relevant services in Waitaki, and assist you with solving problems you may encounter, so you can find your own way as quickly as possible!
