Star Safari in Wairarapa

Star Safari at Stonehenge Aotearoa

Venture beyond Earth on a Star Safari!

Give yourself some space this weekend. From the creators of Milky-Way.Kiwi comes Star Safari. Discover the universe with their powerful telescopes, planetarium and space science communicators.

Take a Star Safari in the Wairarapa every Friday and Saturday

Spend Friday and Saturday evenings with the stars, or check out Star-Safari's state of the art portable planetarium on Saturday mornings (see sessions and timings on their website) to learn how to find Matariki and what's in the night sky, regardless of the weather. Star Safari is the social enterprise that brings access to the night sky for everyone, from the creators of Milky-Way.Kiwi the online platform for space and astronomy news with New Zealand flavour. 

When the stars are visible?

When the sky is clear, or even partially clear, you will be able to start your Star Safari with telescope viewing, and afterwards enjoy exclusive access to the astronomical observatory at the henge.

When the sky is cloudy?

Sometimes the sky is cloudy, so you'll start with a full guided night tour in the henge. Then you will see an interactive presentation of the night sky with Astroreality 3D Printed Augmented Reality products and online telescopes from SLOOH.
