Ka Manawatai a Matariki 

The arrival of winter heralds the countdown to Matariki and we would like to invite you all to our Matariki celebrations, happening all weekend from the 28-30th of June.

As the stars of the Matariki cluster rise in the winter sky, they signal a time of remembrance, reflection, and renewal across Aotearoa. Matariki is a special period that connects us to the land, the sky, and each other, through a series of events, traditions, and celebrations that are deeply rooted in Māori culture.

Ngā Manu is celebrating this special time of year with a number of offerings for the whole whānau.

We are introducing a brand-new Star Hunt Nature Trail, combined with a Seed Bomb Workshop which enables tamariki to make their own seed bomb to take home.

We will also have a sausage sizzle and hot drinks on offer, along with guided bush walks at 12:15pm. Not to mention our ever-popular Eel Feeding at 12pm and 2pm. These will be running across the whole weekend (28-30 June).

On Friday we will also have Daisy Design face painting from 12-2pm and your chance to meet a life size Moa, courtesy of Stringbean Puppets.
