Event: Astronomy on tap


Head to Space Place at the Carter Observatory in the Wellington Botanic Gardens and spend some time gazing into the skies

A live presentation takes you out to the universe and back home, just in time for a drink and a look around the interactive space displays. The cable car runs until 10pm, so you can enjoy drinks and an exceptional experience before heading back into town.

Astronomy on Tap is the perfect way to spend a relaxing evening among the stars with a date, mate, or flying solo, leaving your earthly troubles behind as you wander among the stars through the extended Night Sky programme.

In the second hour, journey further into the universe through galaxies and nebula and deep-sky objects. The ticket price ($39) includes nibbles and one drink upon arrival. There is also a cash bar for after the show.

When: 3 December, 8pm to 10pm

Where: Space Place at Carter Observatory, Wellington
