Ōamaru Opera House banner

The iconic Ōamaru Opera House is a prime example of a unrivalled heritage-listed nineteenth century streetscape. Built over a century ago and officially opened on October 7, 1907, the building has been preserved in its original condition, being restored only in 2009. 

This timeless venue is renowned as the first choice for quality entertainment, meetings and conferences in North Otago. The Ōamaru Opera House is a symbol of the heart, soul and passions of the local community, and its doors remain open for all kinds of social, political and cultural activities.

Our family has been involved in farming and quarrying for six generations, resulting in the establishment of Parkside Quarry, Parkside Limeworks, and Ōamaru Stone.

When it comes to constructing modern and sophisticated buildings, you know that the material used makes a significant impact. Since the 1860s, limestone has been quarried from various sites around Otago to construct some of New Zealand's most iconic buildings, including the Oamaru Opera House. Today, Parkside Quarry is the only remaining quarry in Otago, making our Ōamaru Stone limestone a unique and desirable choice for architects and builders alike. Our state-of-the-art facilities utilise advanced machinery, including our 5 Axis CNC Machine, the largest of its kind in New Zealand and one of only two in Australasia.
