Aquarium News

Joins us to celebrate Matariki!

Learn all about the nine stars of Matariki from 24-26 June at the National Aquarium of New Zealand.  We've also brought back our popular star wall where you can write your wishes and hopes for the coming year on a star and display it on our wall to share with visitors.  You can also relax in our oceanarium hall and view the Te Wānanga o Aotearoa Matariki story.

We're open every day 9am - 5pm and can't wait to see you all to celebrate New Zealand's first Matariki public holiday.
