Matariki Mackenzie - 24 and 25 June 2022

Here, in Te Manahuna, we're driven by a collective kaupapa (purpose) to protect te pō (dark sky), preserve whenua (land) and kotahitaka (unity).

Matariki, the Māori new year, is an opportunity for all to gather together and reflect on the year that has passed, celebrate the present, and plan for the future. It is a time to pause, to connect, and to consider our responsibility to our environment.

Join us for kai, culture and kōrero as we celebrate the rising of Matariki under the cloak of the world's largest gold dark sky reserve.
