Celebrate Matariki at the National Aquarium

Matariki ENewsletter 72dpiLearn all about the nine stars of Matariki these school holidays at the National Aquarium.

We've teamed up with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa this year for crafts and learning. Make your own origami star, write your wish and thoughts on it then add it to our community kete.

You can also enjoy a special story time being held Monday to Friday at 11.30am upstairs opposite our wonderful Tuatara Alfie’s habitat.

Don’t forget to time your visit to hear our penguin talks, or watch our sharks being feed!
