WLJ - Day 6 Activity 2

Activity 2: After visiting Shag Point, you hop back in the van and drive all the way up the east coast of the south island until you reach the town of Picton. You get out of the van and onto the Interislander ferry. It travels back across the Cook Strait to Wellington. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and every winter the city hosts a huge Matariki festival to celebrate the Maori New Year. This year part of the festival is being held at Te Papa, a big museum in Wellington.
Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. You can choose any three events that you wish.
1)Matariki dawn:
I would want to do the Matariki dawn because I would want to learning more about the Maori culture and learn more about the 7 sisters!
2)Star weave jam:
I would love to do the star weave jam because I would love to learn how to weave so I can make my own useful things to use!
3)Matariki Fireworks
I would love to see the fireworks because they would be very satisfying to look at and plus sometimes I forget their are fireworks firing so they can give me frights!


  1. Hi Sarah,

    Great review about the Matariki festival. Do you think you would ever go there one day? I'm planning to take my daughter Shonny for visit to see the fireworks. I can't wait. I would love to read more interesting facts about the Matariki festival if you have found any.



  2. Hi Sarah
    All of those things that you listed sound awesome but I reckon the best one is the fireworks. Do you know if the fireworks are at night? Keep up the good work.
