Under The Stars Tour
$195 per person
($195 per person – 2 hours)
The Hakikino Conservation Reserve includes our celestial disc (the Matai Whetu)- a place high on a hill where we can gaze at the southern night sky and enjoy the dark sky of Waimarama, with very little light pollution.
It is from these heights that we’ll get a sense of this place and how it fit in the life of the people that once inhabited the area. Your guide will talk about the night sky and what is specific to our location. You’ll cover highlights of the Southern Sky, constellations, movements of planets, celestial navigation, and general information about what can be seen without the aid of a telescope.
Photographers are very welcome.
Dress CodeCasual. Comfortable clothing, outdoor footwear, hat and warm jacket if weather dictates.
