Matariki Festival 2017 An Indigenous Event of National Identity

Matariki signals the Māori New Year. It's a time of renewal and celebration in New Zealand that begins with the rising of the Matariki star cluster (the Pleiades or Seven Sisters).

Our Matariki Festival festivities have come to an end but make sure you join us in Jun & Jul 2018 for more celebrations.
