Huge open space not far from the CBD. We strolled through on the way to the museum on a bright sunny day. Had we have been more organised we probably would have taken a picnic and sat on the hill admiring the views.

If you are living in city in small tiny, shoe box apartments. You have a wonderful backyard at a walkable distance, beautiful lush green lawns and winter gardens very warm in winter

I love the Auckland Domain. A lot of people don't realise there are a number of walking trails throughout the Domain that make you completely forget you're in the middle of the city.

Lovely gardens, cool and tropical houses with interesting flora, ponds, open spaces and heavily-treed areas, lots of local activity and family outings to be seen. Most enjoyable.
