Stargazing Tours - Dark Sky Project Lake Tekapo


Latest Questions about Stargazing Tours - Dark Sky Project (Lake Tekapo)

Hi there,

I am from auckland, and plan for a 2 or 3 days trip to Lake Tekepo to see Aurora Australis, when is the best time to go there during the year? and should I fly to Tiramu or Christchurch, or Queenstown then drive to Tekepo?

Thanks a lot

Elva Chan


Hi Elva, an Aurora Australis is extremely unpredictable and no one can ever be certain when it is going to happen. It depends on how active the sun is but it can occur any time of day or night for either a few seconds or last a few hours. Winter is generally a good time of year to see one but only because there are more dark hours.
