Matariki, or Maori New Year, is the time when whanau and friends gather, trees are planted, food is collected for the winter, and a beautiful group of blue stars rise in the east just before dawn. Anyone interested in Maori culture and astronomy will enjoy learning about “te whakanui i a Matariki” – celebrating Matariki, at Stardome with these events on during the Matariki Festival.
Stardome's 'Matariki Breakfast' will start with a pre dawn walk up to the top of Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill), (weather dependant), escorted by astronomy experts who will talk about Matariki as the stars rise. The star viewing is followed by a light breakfast and hot drink back at Stardome and the planetarium show, ‘Matariki Dawn’.
