Here’s a floor plan of Stardome for your reference. Your school trip will take you into the Space Room, Space Gallery & Exhibits area and Planetarium.
We have a fully equipped first-aid kit at reception and two trained first-aid staff members on site if required.
Our building has wheelchair access to bathroom facilities, the planetarium and the Space Room.
The planetarium has a hearing loop for those who are hearing impaired.

Our planetarium shows run rain or shine! However, please be aware that Stardome is not a large facility and we don’t have space for classes to stay in the building beyond their booked time. Please liaise with your bus company to arrange an early pick up if it is raining.
If you are early your class can walk around the park or play in the playground. Unfortunately, Stardome isn’t large enough to hold your class before your booked time. If you are running late, please call us on 09 624 1246 to let us know and we’ll make adjustments to fit your class in.
Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill Domain are fantastic spots to stop for a break. In the case of wet weather, please speak to a Stardome staff member for possible alternative arrangements.
If your numbers change, just give us a call. Remember that our planetarium seats only 86 and this is the maximum number of people we can have in an education session.
We’re right next door to the most famous hill in the country! One Tree Hill is walking distance from Stardome.
Each bus company has it’s own process for dropping students off to Stardome safely. Talk to your transport provider to find out more.
Frolic Café is right across the road from Stardome on Manukau Road, or through the park is the Cornwall Park Café. Both do great coffee!
Sure! We’re a small team but we’ll do our best to help.
