Great Barrier Island, New Zealand, is an International Dark Sky Sanctuary, and the first island sanctuary in the world.

Away from the lights of the big city and as an off-the-grid island, our light pollution is minimal.

Our dark skies are superb for stargazing.

​Good Heaven's enthusiastic guides will take you on a journey through special stars, constellations and deep sky objects in our dark, starry, southern sky.
We will enlighten you on their special features and tell their stories.

​​We get close to the stars with an 8" telescope and binoculars. Comfy seating, a hot drink and blankets when it's cold will keep you cozy.

We invite you to enjoy the magical night sky of Great Barrier Island with us!
