Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to the Ātea a Rangi – the Celestial Star Compass. Join the Ātea a Rangi Educational Trust in a heated marquee at Waitangi Regional Park to celebrate the winter solstice - the time of Matariki, the Māori new year. Hear the history of Pacific migrations and the foods that spread throughout the Islands of Te Moana nui a Kiwa / The Great Ocean of Kiwa. Experience the traditional food that has been passed down for generations with these migrations.

Dress warm, bring a coat for stargazing afterwards. This is a non-alcoholic event. We encourage car-pooling. All proceeds go to further local School education programmes at the Ātea a Rangi. Numbers are limited to 70 people.

The night ends with a guided tour of the stars at the celestial compass with Ngāti Kahungunu navigator Piripi Smith. Please also note that ticket sales for this event close 5pm Friday 15th June.
