Attention all Stargazers! Are you looking for something amazing to do on your next day off? Or do you just need very little excuses to stare up at the stars? Either way, make sure to visit the International Dark Sky Reserve on the South Island! This 4300 square kilometre region is home to some of the most unique skyscapes in the world since it is strictly light pollution controlled.
Visitors can stare up at the sky with the naked eye, however, you can also take a more detailed look through one of the areas of many telescopes. Visitors can also witness constellations that are completely unique to the area, such as views of the Milky Way, Southern Cross and Magellanic Clouds. So, what are you waiting for? You could make the most of your next day off, or you could spend weeks exploring the amazing sites at the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve!
