The Peak 2000

Celebrate the dawn of the new millennium at the only country officially recognized as the first to see the sunrise. This country is no other than New Zealand. To witness this rare occasion, you need to be at Hawke's Bay, East Coast of North Island. The amazing Te Mata Peak in Hawke's Bay, with a summit that is 400 meters above sea level, will provide you with the experience of a lifetime - the first spectacular view of the new sunrise on January 1, 2000.

Of course, there are other joyous and exciting events lined up to benefit the "first-to-see-the-sun" place. Join the celebrations at Te Mata Peak, which will begin at 5 p.m. on December 31, 1999. Events include fun-filled entertainment, good food and wine, an opportunity to observe the final sunset, midnight moon and the first sunrise, and a Champagne Breakfast to cap it off!

Guests will be transported from Havelock North Village to Te Mata Peak. The Te Mata Peak Reserve will be closed to all but the 2000 guests. There are "three-levels" of fun waiting for all guests. Each will be well pampered and entertained from the moment they step onto the coach right up to Te Mata Peak.

Level One offers a Deluxe Buffet at the Peak House Restaurant and an art exhibition. Level Two is the place to dance the night away with an open-air amphitheater, bars, a dance floor and a traditional Hangi feast. A grand celebration will be held to say goodbye to the final sunset. This is further graced by world renowned opera singer, Dame Malvina Major, along with other excellent New Zealand entertainers. Level Three boasts of another marquee equipped with a bar, café and rest area for that moment of silence before rejoining the party. This is also the place to greet the dawn in a manner that is very different from other celebrations around the world. There will be no gleeful shouts or bursts of firecrackers across the sky. It will be a time of respectful silence. As the first light touches your face, only one sound cuts across the valley…that of a spiritual call.
