Matariki is the Māori name for the star cluster known as Pleiades.
It is a time to gather with family and friends to reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and plan for the future. Rotorua is celebrating Matariki, with a range of free events around the region. From family events to craft days, talks to musical performances, there's a lot to love and learn about Matariki.
The calendar of events for Matariki 2019 is now available to download.
