Explore constellations, look for a shooting star and discover planets invisible to the naked eye with the new Skyline Rotorua Stargazing experience.
Mt Ngongotaha is one of the top eight locations in New Zealand for stargazing where the dark clear skies blanketing Rotorua make for a breathtaking experience.
Skyline Rotorua offers top-of-the-line telescopes to give stargazers the chance to view an amazing array of sights, from the iconic Southern Cross to nebulas, planets, the Milky Way and other galaxies.
The most impressive telescope is called ‘The Don,’ weighing over 100kg and performing 2,586 times better than your eye at gathering light, to see space like never before. What’s unique about this telescope is its sharpness - stars are sharp all the way to the edge, which is not the case for 99% of other telescopes.
