Oamaru Scott Centenary Celebrations
On February 10th 1913 the Terra Nova arrived off New Zealand's little Harbour of Oamaru bearing the news of Scott’s Antarctic expedition and its fate.
This momentous epic of exploration will be marked at the point of return from the Antarctic in the Oamaru Harbour February 6th to 10th 2013.
Oamaru Harbour will come alive with the celebration of a golden age in exploration. 100 years since the Terra Nova arrived off Oamaru Harbour the town will host five days of events including sea and land activities, education and adventure programmes, art, literature and lectures.
For details and reservation details for all the dinners, centenary plays and the re-enactment of Terra Nova entering Oamaru Harbour, please visit the Oamaru Scott 100 web page.
