Matariki Food Festival.

Matariki refers to the rising of the star cluster Pleiades and is often considered the Maori New Year. The rising of Pleiades was used to mark seasons and also the end of a harvest which meant food stores were plentiful.

Celebrate this Matariki festival with delicious, traditional Maori cuisine on the dinner buffet at Whitby’s Restaurant. There will be a variety of vegetable, seafood and meat dishes to feast on as well as an extensive dessert selection.

You can also receive discounted admission to Carter Observatory to see Pleiades for yourself when you dine!

The Matariki Food Festival will be available on the dinner buffet at Whitby’s Restaurant from the 10th until 23rd June.
