Stonehenge Aotearoa is unique in New Zealand and internationally and was inspired by the original 4000 years old pre-historic monument, Stonehenge. The modern version you will see here is an open air observatory where you can learn about the cycles of nature, movements of celestial bodies and cultures and traditions from Aotearoa and around the world.

Stonehenge Aoteroa is New Zealand's unique open air astronomical observatory, built following ancient knowledge of the stone circles and adapted to the conditions of New Zealand. We look forward to seeing you here during our regular opening hours and for special events.

You can visit the henge anytime we are open, without having to make any appointment. Check out our opening hours below. A map of the Stonehenge Aotearoa structure and a short audio-visual explaining how the stones work are included in the visit.

Book a daytime guided tour where you will learn about the henge and its link with the past, with ancient civilisations and Maori starlore, Polynesian navigation and archeoastronomy.
