Matariki Night Walk

Celebrate Matariki with a lantern-lit family walk beside the Pūharakekenui / Styx River and explore this riverside park by night.

Darkness transforms the natural world into a different place and walking in the engages your other senses to hear, feel and smell the forest.

Local park rangers will keep you safe as we wander and then gather around the fire to sup hot chocolate and listen to stories.

Pushchair accessible. Dress warmly with sturdy footwear. We encourage you to wear dark, non-rustling clothes – the magic comes alive if we are quiet!

Don't forget your torch (covered with red cellophane) or bring a home-made lantern.

A gold coin donation would be appreciated towards volunteer restoration efforts in this park.

All attendees, regardless of age, must register via eventfinda. Limit 60 people.
