Waimate is a peaceful country town with Edwardian buildings, native bush walks and a tranquil disposition.
As you approach Waimate from the north, you will see a horse shape near the top of the hills behind the town. The White Horse was made as a tribute to the Clydesdale horses that were used to break the surrounding land into pasture.
Wallabies are synonymous with Waimate, having been introduced from Australia in the 1870s. These miniature kangaroos are inquisitive animals, so don't be surprised if they approach you when visiting one of the animal parks. However, along with deer, rabbits, wild goats and possums, wallabies are considered a pest, so they can be hunted.
South of the town is the mighty Waitaki River. This long, wide river is great for fishing for trout and salmon - in fact, it is claimed that the river has produced some of the heaviest salmon in the South Island.
You can select your accommodation in Waimate from self-catering motels and lodge, a bed & breakfast and holiday parks, which provide budget accommodation, campervan and campsites, and on-site caravans. Pet friendly accommodation may be available by arrangement.
