Sea Life in Magical Lights.
Go on a magical journey through dazzling light displays and stunning special effects. Sit by a fire and meet some elves, watch the entertaining production line of elves preparing gifts, sing with Santa and watch his sleigh sweep past the moon.
As you turn each corner on your journey through the Aquarium, there will be something new to surprise and delight you. This is a unique and memorable experience for all ages.
What’s your pledge to nature?
This year as part of our Holiday Lights event, our Aquarium team are giving gifts of pledges to nature - things we'll do to help the environment.
You'll see our 'gifts' as part of a unique display, and have the opportunity of ‘posting’ your own pledges in our dedicated pledge letterbox too! We’ll select pledges and display them on our special Christmas tree for all to see, share and learn more about what we can do to help the environment.
Holiday Lights at National Aquarium of New Zealand will be open to the public during normal opening hours from 7 December until 31 January. Normal admission rates apply.
Please note: Some special effects may contain flashing lights.
Thursday 24 January, 9:00am to 4:30pm
Friday 25 January, 9:00am to 4:30pm
Restrictions: All Ages
