The park is super. There are lots of interesting plants and trees as well as the glasshouses and lily ponds. The museum is there too but needs plenty of time to explore.

This is a very friendly peaceful place to relax, take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. This despite the fact that it is within the city. If you are visiting the Auckland Museum I highly recommend walking through the Domain on your way. It takes you right there.

I would spend an afternoon off just going for a walk around the Domain, great place just to unwind for the day, plus some good views back over the CBD

I spent a half day in the Auckland Museum, which I gave 5 "circles" in a separate review, and a few hours in this wonderful garden. I didn't make it to the Duck Pond.

Within the Auckland Domain are a variety of places of interest. It is located next to the Auckland Hospital, so if you happen to be visiting, or unlucky enough to be a patient, pop out-side a check out the view!

Love the Domain - dominated by the Auckland Museum which in itself is fantastic the grounds allow for so many activities including the fabulous Christmas in the Park and Anzac Day parades, the Wintergardens and of course the duck ponds which I remember fondly from my own childhood. Getting a carpark for a decent length of time for concerts etc... More
