Dark Sky Project
1 Motuariki Lane, Lake Tekapo
At Dark Sky Project (formerly Earth & Sky) we strive to connect manuhiri (visitors) to our night skies, and to inspire a lifelong understanding and passion for the dark sky above. We’re proud to be world-leaders in astro-tourism experiences and advocates for dark sky preservation. Located in the heart of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, the largest Dark Sky Reserve in the world as well as the first to be awarded gold tier status, Takapō (Tekapo) is one of the quietest spots on the planet yet it has one of the busiest night skies in the universe. We’re privileged to offer a range of experiences at exclusive locations in this world-renowned stargazing destination.
