Visiting Carter Observatory
E nga mana, e nga reo, e nga karangaranga maha
Tena koutou tena koutou tena koutou katoa.
Nau mai, haere mai ki te Ara Whānui ki te Rangi
We welcome you to Carter Observatory where we aim to inspire you through the stories we tell of our southern skies.
A visit to Carter includes our multimedia exhibition and a show in our digital full-dome planetarium. We recommend you allow yourself at least 1 1/2 hours to enjoy the full Carter experience.
For the safety of all visitors, we ask that children up to the age of 14 years are supervised by an adult.
We look forward to seeing you here at Carter.
