Vanished World offers specific Activity Days to young people and parents during each of the three mid-term School Holidays. Located in Duntroon, Vanished World is some 35 minutes’ drive from Oamaru:

Most activities will require parent involvement to provide transport and supervision.

  • Our focus will be on “Family Activities” across the younger age groups. (Pre-school, Primary and Intermediate School age children.)
  • We work in with the Duntroon Blacksmith to add variety to the day’s activities.
  • A financial charge is necessary to cover materials and volunteer costs.
