Puanga / Matariki Celebrations

Travel among the stars in Devonport for a hands-on Puanga / Matariki adventure. Spread throughout the village, lantern making, board games, storytelling, hāngī, waiata and more will enrich your Matariki experience. After sunset, join the magnificent lantern hīkoi on a spectacular journey up Takarunga / Mt Victoria and return to witness the first lighting of Devonport’s Puanga / Matariki street lights. This whole day of activities is for the community, by the community and you won’t want to miss it! Mānawatia a Matariki.
