Steampunk - New Zealand

Steampunk is a quirky and fun genre of science fiction that features steam-powered technology. It is often set in an alternate, futuristic version of 19th century Victorian England.

The Steampunk future is driven by unusual steam powered devices – the ‘world gone mad’ as Victorian people may have imagined it. Examples are machines like those in the writing of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, and in tv shows such as Dr. Who.

Oamaru is an ideal setting for Steampunk art and activities, given the wonderfully preserved and thriving Victorian buildings.

There is a fashion show to accompany the festival in May each year.

Pen Y Bryn

A traditional home, this boutique hotel is superbly comfortable and the hosts are amazingly welcoming. A wooden-paneled billiard room and atmospheric library set the mood for the lavish public spaces, and the dinner service is of the highest quality.
