Aramoana by Moonlight - SOLD OUT

Aramoana Conservation Trust —

Aramoana is magical on a full moon. On Easter Monday 22 April at 7.30 let the Aramoana Conservation Trust take you on a guided night walk to watch the full moon rise out of the sea. Followed by a cup of tea/coffee and a scone with event ending at 9pm. A perfect way to end a holiday and to celebrate Earth Day.

"Aramoana and Te Ngaru are unique in being the only towns in Otago with no street lighting. We are extremely fortunate to be able to admire our night sky and be able to see the moons phases change. In the mid 1990's there were plans afoot to introduce street lights to Aramoana. but following a protracted discussion 63 % of lot holders at aramoana chose to remain street light free. Our walk on the evening of Monday 22 April will be conducted largely within the Aramoana Ecological Area which was created after the victory against the now infamous aluminium plant proposal of the early 1980's".   Bradley from Aramoana Conservation Trust

The Trust will guide two groups of 10 people in two directions; one group will walk to the end of the boardwalk and the other to the Spit to view the moon rising and to see the night sky clearly without any light pollution.  

Only 20 people can attend this special event and it will be weather dependant.  

Meet at the Aramoana Domain
