The Auckland Museum and Botanical Garden are located within the park. The park provides a nice respite from the noise and bustle of central Auckland and provides a pleasant way to shake off the...

This is a really nice huge area of parkland with sports pavilion, Wintergarden and with the museum there too. A very relaxing place for a stroll with a few small inclines to get your heart rate up.

We popped over to the Domain and visited the museum for the WOW exhibition. What a lovely place to visit, great views, well maintained gardens and a very well put together exhibition. Cafe was very average - avoid!

First of all . . .the trees! There is a really beautiful fig tree here that is totally worth the visit alone! This lovely, huge, spacious park has something to please everyone! There are so many different spaces to wander about. Different gardens, and green spaces so close to the CBD make it a place to be used and enjoyed... More

The domain is well kept with good footpaths. There are very limited public toilets that are hard to find in such a large park and signposting with regards to directions (how to get out and to which part of the city) is farily minimal. Its a shame that there are roads through the park as it makes it feel less... More
