Space Place at Carter Observatory


We welcome you to Space Place where we aim to inspire you through the stories we tell of our southern skies. Take a journey to space in the Pelorus Trust Planetarium, a state of the art, digital experience that will take you on a virtual space journey, from Wellington to some of the outer regions of our own Solar System and beyond.

This is a special domed theatre, set with reclined seats that allow you to relax, lean back and take in a very different view of the sky above you, day or night. You'll have Space Place staff with you who can answer your burning questions about our Southern Skies. Shows finish with a guided tour of that night's sky.

  • We recommend you allow yourself at least 1 1/2 hours to enjoy the full experience. 
  • Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
