Star Gazing

Wairarapa has received official Dark Sky Reserve Status. This means our region is one of the
best places in the world to view the never-ending star filled skies. Wairarapa’s proximity to
Wellington is an exceptional point of difference for star lovers – our new Reserve is not off
the beaten track and arguably, is the most accessible of the 21 protected Dark Sky Reserves
in the world. Our tourism businesses are already looking skyward.  Star Safari, Under the Stars
and Stonehenge Aotearoa, and others will help you experience our skies, with fascinating
guided tours.
