Te Iwa o Matariki 🌠
Celebrate the Māori New Year at Northlands!
Each winter the stars of Matariki and Puanga (Rigel) signal the end of one year and the beginning of the next. It is a time of remembering those who have passed, giving thanks for the blessings we have, preparing for the year ahead and for higher learning.
Immerse yourself in our Matariki activation and learn about this special time of year. Located outside New Zealand Natural.
We have joined up with Christchurch City Council, to hold two fun and interactive storytelling sessions. The kids will be thoroughly entertained with stories about Matariki, waiata, and free glow in the dark stars.
