All Ages

In the lead-up to Ahi Kā and during the long weekend, enjoy a series of indigenous short films showcasing stories of our ocean, projected on a water screen. Watch as millions of water droplets fall and catch the light, creating the illusion of images appearing from the darkness and floating on the water.

Mana Moana Pōneke is a collaboration between Māori and Pasifika musicians, artists, writers, and choreographers.

Also enjoy Matariki Ahi Kā, 6pm - 9pm, 27 - 30 June. Celebrate the Māori New Year in a uniquely Wellington way.

Honour our culture and history, with a big, bold, immersive Wellington Waterfront walk-through journey including fire, projections, performances, and a special ceremony each night to honour those who have passed away and to express our hopes for the future. Share kai with friends and whānau each evening at the Odlins Plaza kai court, while listening to performers on the Aroha stage. Visit the Council web page in June for the programme.
