Matariki ki Pōneke

Nau mai, haere mai. Thank you to the thousands of Wellingtonians and visitors who came to enjoy our Matariki celebrations this year.

Burning braziers floating in water at night.

We hope you enjoyed the Matariki celebrations this year. Our events included Ahi Kā, a journey through fire, stories, and imagery on the waterfront, and our fabulous Matariki Fireworks display.


You can still enjoy the Waituhi flags, and a mural on the Frank Kitts Park waterfront doors, with feature designs by artist Tane Morris.
