Winter Stories in the Sky: Matariki Edition

Matariki - Stories

 

Join Lucy Lawless and John-Rhys Davies in a stellar adventure as they navigate through the night sky and delve into the myths and legends behind the constellations visible in the season of your visit. Not only will you be introduced to fantastic Greek and Māori characters, you will also learn what a constellation is, how they are used for astronomical purposes and where the names of planets come from!

What’s different about this Matariki-flavoured version of the show? The live presenter tour of the night sky will ave a strong Matariki focus! You’ll see the stars-up close, learn their names and catch an extra clip of the ‘Great Waka’ story from our Matriki Dawn show.
