Beautiful Park For a Stroll

Lovely park with lots of hiking, trails, botanic gardens, ponds, and such. Perfect for a weekend stroll.

I love how summery it feels in the domain - just super relaxing. I love the gardens and the bush walks as well.

Feed the ducks, walk through the winter gardens, sit & soak up the sun or head to the Museum on a wet day! Have been to the Domain many times and each time we manage to find a new section to explore - one of the most beautiful parks in Auckland! Highly recommend it...

The Domain has the feeling of space and is peaceful to stroll through. The museum is situated in the Domain and I enjoyed my day in the area.

Relaxing in the sunshine around the band rotunda listening to chilled out jazz music - perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Even in a season called winter, the landscape was that gorgeous. I can't help to wonder how it would be in summer. This is a perfect place either to hang out on the grass with some friends, take a romantic just-you-and-me time, do jogging, explore the surrounding hills, or even just taking pictures.

The Auckland domain is very cool. Built on an old volcano the terrane is pretty exceptional. The view from the museum will give you a brilliant view of Auckland city.

This is a great place to wander round a sunny day! The park has everything from large expanses of grass edged with chunky trees, sculptures scattered throughout, a woodland walk, winter gardens... what more could you want?

If you see some of the domain on the way to the museum, that's all well and good. However, not really much to do apart from walk on some paths around it, better places for a picnic or to spend an afternoon

A really nice play to walk around, even when it started to rain a bit when we went. The Winter Garden is a particular highlight with the two green houses displaying beautiful flowers and ferns. I also really liked the cat statue that sits between them by the fish pond in the middle. The Domain also has a duck pond,... More
