Aoraki Mackenzie Starlight Festival

Oct 09. till Oct 11.

We plan an event that will reach out to the public, families and school students, to showcase our International Dark Sky Reserve, promote dark skies and educate the public.
The Starlight festival is a public outreach event celebrating the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, the world's largest such reserve and the first in the world with gold tier status. A wide range of scientific, educational and cultural events involving stargazing, music, lectures, exhibitions and a poetry/essay competition spread over 3 days are planned.
