Learn Beneath the Stars with Tekapo Starlight's Star Watching Tour
Explore the Mackenzie High Country's new gold-tier Dark-Sky Reserve. Tekapo Starlight offers star watching tours in Lake Tekapo Village as well as presentations to School and astronomy groups in the Canterbury region.
Using your unaided eyes, explore the ages and depths of the universe, the birth and death of stars and their planets; all unfolding in the constellations and galaxies we will discover above us.
