The pandemic meant we could not plan for our usual big, beautiful event. So to celebrate the inaugural Matariki public holiday, we’re bringing the stars down to earth.Between the 20th - 30th June, we invite you to come
down to Avebury House and the Richmond Community Garden, to trace the path of the Matariki star cluster in the red zone. As night falls the ‘star stations’ will light up creating a star-path you can follow after sundown! An approximately 700m circuit in the community garden area,
it will encompass 9 stars of the cluster, with a little of their stories.We’re so sad not to be hosting the hāngī, music and entertainment of midwinters’ past, but we are excited to introduce our new star hikoi! We intend to bring the much-loved community event back full throttle in 2023, but we’ll be growing and incorporating our star-path into
future Matariki in the Zone!
