Elephant Rocks: about 30 minutes out of Oamaru heading inland towards Duntroon make the effort to go past Elephant Rocks (where Narnia was filmed) It's free access into privately owned farmland. It's a massive boulder field that people into rock climbing play on. It's worth taking a picnic and taking the time to work out what sorts of animal these rocks all represent. All around this area are heaps of fossils; you may even see parts of Moa and whale......
