Take Off!

Take the stress off finding activities to do during Auckland Anniversary weekend and take off to Stardome for a day of exploring all things rockets!

Sunday 26 January, 10am – 4pm

Long weekends are fantastic. You can put your work laptop away, relax, and perhaps even get those jobs around the house finally done. But with a large number of these long weekends falling in the first few months of the year, constantly finding affordable activities to keep the kids entertained can get increasingly more difficult.

That’s when heading to Stardome fits the bill perfectly. We’re going rocket crazy to keep the whole family entertained.

Take off and leave Auckland behind in the 360-degree theatre, flying out into the Solar System and Milky Way Galaxy in a kid’s planetarium experience. Shows will run every half hour. There will also be a ‘rocket workshop’ filled with crafts and competitions. Get the kids their daily dose of vitamin D with outdoor activities including a bouncy castle, solar telescope viewing, outdoor dining options, and water powered rocket launching!

$2 per person

Bookings to your preferred planetarium show time are required. Call 09 624 1246 to reserve your spot.

Some outdoor activities are weather dependent. Dining options are third parties and are paid for separately.

All ticket sales will go towards Stardome’s education programme.
