Matariki Dawn

Planetarium North and Kiwi North present Matariki dawn, a gathering to watch the rising dawn.

Last year's beautiful early morning welcome of Puanga and Matariki was so special we have decided to do it again. Watch Puanga and Matariki's travels across the night sky- Planetarium tours every 10 minutes from 6 to 7am.

Learn about the stars at the Planetarium and visit the Museum including the latest exhibition 'Growing Local' in the Mim Ringer Gallery. Share a hot drink and bbq breakfast with us, while watching the sunrise from our vantage spot overlooking the city. Welcome the New Year with a fire pit on the knoll.

Koha appreciated.
