4 - 19 July: 'Wish Upon a Star' this Matariki


Between 4th and 19th July the National Aquarium of New Zealand, in conjunction with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, invite you to write your wish on a star and hang it among the wishes of our community on our 'Wish Upon a Star' wall.

Throughout our Oceanarium there will also be opportunities for you and your whānau to learn more about the nine stars of Matariki and what they represent through activities, handouts and a short film to enjoy.⁠
