Aotea / Great Barrier Island is a Dark Sky Sanctuary - among the best places for stargazing in New Zealand, yet only 1/2 hour from Auckland. What better place to appreciate our own planet then this off-grid, low-waste island, where local guides look after you and entertain you with interesting facts and fascinating stories, that have helped our ancestors make sense of this magical night time world throughout the ages
Group stargazing experiences of 1.5-2 hours for individuals, couples and groups. Small groups, scenic locations, an 8" telescope and binoculars, guide you deep into space. Book a private experience if you have a large group, an interpreter or children under 8 years old. Come marvel at the stars with us.
