About this Event

Venture with us beyond Earth!

Learn about astronomy, the night sky, history of astronomy and modern stargazing at Stonehenge Aotearoa.

What's included

WHEN THE STARS ARE VISIBLE, you get a short guided night tour of the henge and stargazing with laser pointers and through our powerful telescopes.

WHEN THE SKY IS CLOUDY, you get a full guided night tour of the henge and a talk about what’s visible in the night sky.

Bring warm clothing, it gets very cold at night.

The gate opens about half hour before the event starts.

Kids are free

Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by a caregiver, however you will have to register them as we do have limited spaces for the event. They must be supervised at all times. For school groups or other groups contact us separately.

Learn about the henge, its importance across cultures and time and its role as astronomical observatory. Our henge is constructed to incorporate Polynesian and Pacific star navigation knowledge. Our presentation includes Pacific star navigation and star compasses.

If the weather is suitable for stargazing, when it is dark, you get to see what’s hidden inside the amazing night sky, looking through our giant telescopes.

What happens if is cloudy?
