For Māori, the emergence of Matariki marks the passing of one year and the start of another. It’s a time to remember lost loved ones and celebrate new beginnings, as well as being a period of reflection and regeneration.

Althoughthe public holiday is Friday, July 14, celebrations and educational programmes have already begun.

Here is an excellent compendium of Matariki events compiled by HB Tourism, updated as additional info becomes available.
