From Wairarapa to space
Learn about the night sky
Nobody can discover the night sky in just one night.
As it changes ever so slightly every day, and visibly from one season to another, there is always something new in the sky. This includes the Planets and the Moon that for ever change their positions.
This is why, we created a Year Pass, so you can have a star safari as often as you’d like, discover New Zealand constellations, and ask as many questions as you need to.
Star Safari is located in one of the best places for stargazing in New Zealand. Bring your camera too and capture these magic moments for yourself from an exceptional location. We will show you how.
