Come and see the first ever Matariki light show at Arataki Visitor Centre.

Starting at the ancestral pou, explore the walkways and experience beautiful bush canopies as they are lit up to represent the nine stars of Matariki.

Walk through the building and visit the pou whenua light box exhibition 'Mai I te pōuriuri: From out of the darkness'. Continue out to the back decks and be greeted by native sounds and sculptures.

Conclude your hīkoi (walk) by exploring a traditional light trail. Bring a torch and wander up to the lookout where you will look across to the expansive lights of Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland). If you are lucky, glow worms may even light your path.

Plenty of parking. Sausage sizzle available for purchase.

This event is proudly hosted by Auckland Council in partnership with Te Kawerau a Maki.
