Te Ara Rama Matariki Light Trail
Turning Maybury Reserve into a magical landscape.
Come early July, Maybury Reserve in Glen Innes will transform from a run of the mill public park into a mystical, fluro-lit spectacle. Layer up and bring some mates to walk along flax-lined pathways amidst thousands of fairy lights, then stick around to catch local musicians in concert and free soup with Maori bread from 7pm.
Marking the halfway point of Matariki and the end of Maori Language Week (Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori), the finale on Saturday 9 July will include an epic fireworks display set to traditional Maori music (or Te Pūoro Māori) from 9.15 pm.
