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

One of the nicest city parks I've ever visited. I walked around here yesterday on a beautiful crisp and clear Auckland day, what a delight. The sculpture trail along "Lovers' Lane" was particularly pretty. The water memorial outside the front of the Museum is very dignified and quite beautiful.

A nice place for a walk in Auckland. Visit the greenhouses for a lovely floral display. But be aware that the site is quite hilly. There are some interesting sculptures and (although I didn't go) the Auckland museum is within the grounds.

For a bit of calm in exotic surroundings. You need to be able to walk up hills. It's worth it once you get here.

Great place run and walk, especially if you are up for a bit of hill work. The view from the steps of the museum is a bonus.
