Located on the east coast of the South Island, 30 minutes south of Oamaru, Hampden is close to some amazing regional attractions. The Moeraki Boulders are an amazing feat of nature that is unique to this part of the country. Dolphins, penguins and seals can be seen close to the shore, and the local lighthouse still holds many of the original fittings. Hampden is a nice place to go to explore the beautiful coast and get back to nature.
