Viaduct Harbour Lights up for Matariki

Matariki is a time the city gathers to celebrate the Māori New Year. From 6pm to 11pm each night from Saturday 30th June to 22nd July, Viaduct Harbour’s sea walls will glow with warm hues of the Matariki sunrise at dawn. On the eastern sea wall, the effect of stars echo the Matariki constellation seen rising in the sky from the north east.

Vector Lights will see the Auckland Harbour Bridge illuminated on select nights during Matariki, telling a story that reflects on the past and ahead to the future. Secure your viewing spot from Viaduct Harbour and catch the Vector Lights Matariki display from 6pm to midnight on the following evenings:


Friday 6th July &

Saturday 7th July


Friday 13th July &

Saturday 14th July


Friday 20th July &
