Omaui Reserve

Omaui Reserve has been of historical significance to the Omaui area ever since it became the first gateway to Invercargill. Omaui township was originally occupied as a settlement by Maori and later by Europeans as a whaling base, pilot station and health camp.

It complements the adjacent Omaui Scenic Reserve (Department of Conservation) which is considered significant as the largest tract of bush in Invercargill City.
