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. On the last day of the Matariki festival (July 8 Today) you could watch the fireworks show
  2. Matariki light trail behind Te Oro
  3. Variety's of traditional dances on stages


  1. Hello Freeman well done for keep on doing the Winter Learning Journey. Those three places are the place I would go to as well especially the fireworks show. Have fun doing the other Winter Learning Journey Activities!

  2. Hi Freeman
    Great job on this winter learning journey activity. I would like to go to all of them (The fireworks show the most though). Keep up the amazing work.

  3. Hi Freeman. I think the light trail would be cool because at night time lights, light up really bright. Keep up the great work.

  4. Hi Freeman!

    These sounds like three things I'd be keen to go to as well! I love watching performances and fireworks! This is such a great way to celebrate Matariki!

    Awesome, Freeman.


  5. Hello Freeman, all of those events sounds a lot of fun. If I had to chose which event I would go to out of the three you have chosen, I would probably chose to watch the fireworks show. You are doing a superb job so keep it up.
