Celebrate Matariki

Celebrate Matariki at one of the many community-led events planned around the district.

Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars, that rises in midwinter and for many Māori, heralds the start of the new year. Matariki is a time to celebrate, review the old year, think of loved ones past and present, and set goals for the year to come.
