Steam Punk HQ!

On a roadtrip to the east coast of the South Island we stopped off at Oamaru. We'd heard about this strange cult that has taken over the sleepy seaside town of Oamaru that went by the name of Steampunk! Steampunk is classified as...."a quirky and fun genre of science fiction that features steam-powered technology. It is often set in an alternate, futuristic version of 19th century Victorian England".  The following photographs are from the Steampunk HQ Museum, which has weird and wonderful Mad-Max style vehicles and random objects! The highlight was definitely The Portal...and fully mirrored room with a load of lights that change colour in sequence with soothing music! Strange place, but left smiling!
