Stardome and its team have been sharing a love of space from its premises in Auckland’s One Tree Hill Domain since 1967.  A place of exploration, research and sharing of knowledge Stardome has been regularly open for public viewing evenings and daytime visits for school trips ever since. If you went to school in Auckland or the surrounding area you probably remember your first trip to Stardome as a kid.  In 1997, NZ’s first and still largest Planetarium theatre was constructed and opened on the site.

Stardome is a unique and fun learning adventure for the whole family. Its space gallery and exhibits are free to enter, and the multi-media Planetarium shows featuring astronauts, black holes and everything else outer space-related are presented in the Planetarium every night Wednesday to Sunday and on weekend afternoons. Stardome Observatory and Planetarium is located in the beautiful One Tree Hill Domain, at the base of One Tree Hill, Maungakiekie - one of Auckland's  most prominent volcanic cones and natural landmarks.
