Bluck's Pit (Rocket Launch Viewing)

Point of Interest

Has not been rated.


Blucks Pit Road, Nuhaka, North Island.



Space Coast New Zealand is part of the Wairoa District coastline from which space launches can be viewed. South Islander Peter Beck, founder and CEO of Rocket Lab, chose the very tip of the Mahia peninsula as the perfect spot for the world's first and only private commercial orbital launch site: Launch Complex 1. The best location to watch a launch is at the beach at the end of Blucks Pit Road. Please be advised that parking and facilities are limited and no toilets are available. Its important to note that scrubs and postponements are likely during a launch window, so visitors should anticipate some waiting time. See the Rocket Lab website or Facebook page for details on the next launch.
