This is the oldest park. It was nice walking through the winter garden and seeing the variety of flora and fauna. The green house was a nice place. There were so many statues around in the garden too. This place is a must to visit.

Both grand open spaces, vistas, and intimate walking trails along creeks, this is a simply gorgeous park!

We stay there for one hour. Very nice garden and flowers. We come there in summer and maybe in spring it will be more better.

I wanted to give this 3 1/2 stars to be honest because 'very good' seems a bit ambitious but it is good, particularly because of the interesting flora in the greenhouses. Otherwise it's just a domain like any other, perfectly acceptable. Good for a run. Don't go there as an international visitor unless you really really get your thrills from... More

So can be an all day'er If you are walking, make sure if your walk starts to go downhill, make sure you have seen everything up top as you may not... More

The Domain is an astonishing park and area to go for relaxing, training and any sort of outdoor activity. The park is very safe, clean and big enough to run 5KM or 10KM without getting bored. There are paths both for cycling and running. There are a number of fields to play and for exercising. There are also bathroom and... More

The botanical Gardens are really nice, you can feed the ducks if you bring some bread with you. Some of the geese are quite big and can be scary. Its only a short walk from Auckland Centre and afterwards you can visit Parnell village.

there is so much to do here. You have the Auckland War Memorial Museum, restaurant, Fernery, Hot House with tropical plants, acres of ground to walk in, the Duck pond full of Ducks Geese and Fishes, statues to marvel at, lovely tall trees to picnic under and easy walking distance to Newmarket shopping center. There isn't anything to dislike about... More

I ran to the Auckland domain in the morning this summer while in town on business. Safe and accessible paths provided a few K's worth of running space with plenty of people around.

Free entry, well maintained floral displays with a great range of interesting and very photogenic flowers and foliage patterns. Both inside areas are well worth a look.
