Kiwitown's Port

by Gavin McLean | 01 January 2008
PAPERBACK
Category: General History
"Colonial New Zealand depended on sea transport. Every major or aspiring centre had to have a port. At different times, and with different casts of characters, similar stories were acted out throughout New Zealand. You can tick them off - from siting and building the port right through to our modern worries about balancing the competing demands of conservation and development, and of commercial, recreational and residential users." Located on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, Oamaru harbor struggled to become a safe haven. Yet it became an example of the "progress industry" that reshaped the country's destiny in the pivotal 1860s and 1870s, an archetypal rural servicing town, manufacturing center and port. Today viticulture, dairy farms and farm stays characterize its region but the tides still roll in and out of the harbor, which in turn has become a heritage center, recreation space and tourist venue.
