Aotea/Great Barrier Island is a Dark Sky Sanctuary only half hours' scenic flight from Auckland. The dunes of this pristine, off-grid island are a most picturesque location for stargazing in New Zealand. Here, Good Heavens' local guides entertain you with interesting facts and the fascinating stories our ancestors used and that may help you too, to make sense of this magical night time world.

Group stargazing experiences last 1.5-2 hours and are suited to individuals, couples and groups. Group sizes are small and locations scenic. Guides use an 8" telescope and binoculars to guide you deep into space. Book a private experiences for large groups, if you have and interpreter or children under 8 years old.

Marvel at the stars with us.
