Look Up and Get Lost Stargazing Experience with Good Heavens

February 2 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm

$65 – $130

Aotea Great Barrier Island is an International Dark Sky Sanctuary
Here, light pollution is minimal, and the night sky is wonderfully dark.
We see ten times as many stars here as in Auckland, for example.
This is why Aotea is such a great place to discover the stars.
And why Good Heavens guides love to take you stargazing here.

Our guides will meet you in a dark seaside location on top of a sand dune,
in one of the most pristine island environments.
Here, we invite you to lean back in a comfortable moon chair.
Hearing the waves rolling onto the beach below,
As you become aware of the universe above,
while Good Heavens guides entertain you with interesting facts and the fascinating stories
our ancestors used to make sense of this magical nighttime world

We use laser pointers, binoculars and a telescope to view various objects at the correct scale during a tour that lasts around 1.5 hours, a bit more for large groups of max. 12 stargazers.
Good Heavens is a great option to stargaze in New Zealand:
Our groups are small and intimate, with a maximum of 12 stargazers
Our local guides are experienced and welcoming.
They warmly invite question and children from eight years up.
Our tours are suitable for first time stargazers and astrophysicists
The southern hemisphere sky is magnificent and Great Barrier Island has got prime seats to this stellar spectacle.
