Star Gazing Tours
Experience our Star Gazing Tours in Twizel, one of the most breath-taking things you can do in New Zealand.
Wow, I haven’t seen a night sky like this since I was camping out in the desert. GS, USA
The vast sky of the Mackenzie District of the South Island of New Zealand captivates visitors from all over the world. Stunning sunsets usually lead into stunning starry skies. Twizel, in the centre of the region, has one of the darkest night skies in the world allowing visitors, often for the first time, to experience a night sky where thousands of stars are visible.
At Twizel Stargazing, we bring this stunning night sky alive using an astronomy grade laser pointer to introduce to the fascinating features than can be seen. Identify the Southern Cross, the smallest but most famous constellation, discover the Southern Celestial Pole, discover areas where stars are born and so much more.
Each night is different and your guide will point out the most interesting features of the sky that night, features such as the sudden bright flashes that are seen in this sky, and no, they’re not meteors…
