Stonehenge Aotearoa

Stonehenge Aotearoa is an open air astronomical obsevatory,unique in New Zealand. Designed as a modern adaptation of the Salisbury Plain's Stonehenge, it contains 24 pillars and is 30m in diameter and about 4m high. The pillars are capped with lintels, completing the circle, and a 5m-tall obelisk marks the centre of the henge.

The modern henge was designed to demonstrate how ancient peoples used such constructions to understand astronomy. When viewed from the centre, the stones mark the daily rising and setting positions of the sun. The stone circle also forms a Polynesian star compass, showing the bearings taken by Polynesian seafarers travelling to and from New Zealand.
