Look Up and Get Lost – Group Dark Sky Experience

Night sky tours Great Barrier Island NZ

Tour Overview

Meet us in a stunning, dark island location. Sit back in a comfy moon chair, hear the waves lap against the shore, look up  and see the thousands of stars visible in a Dark Sky Sanctuary.  Let one of our passionate Good Heavens guides illuminate you on the magical display.

Look through our telescope to get close and personal with special stars and deep sky objects. Many are unique to the Southern Hemisphere. They are truly spectacular in our dark sky.

Have constellations drawn in the sky, while you enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or herbal tea. Stargazing does not get more enjoyable than this!

Take a close look at the moon, or gaze at the Milky Way if the moon is hiding. Let’s look for a planet, a satellite, a meteor or a distant galaxy. Marvel at the stars with us. There is so much to see!
