Matariki Events

Matariki is Maori New Year – it’s all about the stars, Pleiades or Seven Sisters to be precise, that rises in mid-winter and heralds a New Year celebration of harvest, new life and bounty. One of the great traditions of Matariki is balloon and kite festivals that flutter “close to the stars”. Come and enjoy the community festivities. Read more about Matariki here.
