Create an itinerary including Steampunk HQ
Fantastical machines come to life at Steampunk HQ, a complex dedicated to the popular world of Victorian-infused alternative history and artwork. Housed within a real Victorian building, the headquarters feature a wide array of the part-retro, part-futuristic hardware and machinery so iconic of the Steampunk genre. Wander the interior sections, marveling at the collection of clocks, artwork, sculptures, and vehicles that make for a strange combination of sci-fi and historical fiction. You'll have a hard time missing premier creations like imagined Victorian-era rockets, fanciful tractors, and the fire-spewing, drill-tipped, demonic-looking steam locomotive out front. Work out when and for how long to visit Steampunk HQ and other Oamaru attractions using our handy Oamaru day trip site.

  • Not sure what we expected when visiting here but not what we thought. Seems to be a collection of a jumble of old tvs, machinery etc set up to look like something out of Dr Who for contacting some...

  • If you are interested in that sort of thing it's ok
  • Super super super (important things need to be repeated 3 times) friendly staff with amazing customer service and great attitude for big and small kids. I would go again and again just to support the business and their staff, to make sure this level of customer focus is encouraged and will last forever. There's quite interesting stuff to see inside and out. Easily spent an hour plus alot more happening around The Victorian Precinct.
