This park is fantastic for viewing NZ plants as well as tropicals and cool weather plants. It isn't often you get to be immersed in ferns so don't pass up the fernery! The Auckland Domain includes much more than plants. The... More

If you want to play some football or cricket in the summer or do any kind of keep fit activity all year round then this is the place to do it. There's loads of space and it's well away from traffic.

I always enjoy coming to the domain as it is a place of Tranquility in the buzy city. The Centre Piece is the WAR MEMORIAL MUSEUM, and the site of the ANZAC Day Memorial Celebrations (in Auckland). The Museum is very inetersting and the War Memorial Section an important tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. So important as... More

The domain is always a nice place to relax and wonder. At this time the winter gardens have a nice collection of cacti and peppers of all sorts - the bishop hat being the most intriguing of all.

This is a great place to get to know the background of NZ in such an interesting historic building set overlooking glorious Auckland Harbour, with manicured grounds. Very relaxing and heart warming.

Our tour guide took us to the Winter a garden as part of our tour and I could have stayed there for hours. The flowers in bloom were gorgeous and the buildings and areas between the building are very pretty. It wasn't crowded the day we were there so it was like having a beautiful garden all to yourself. Loved... More
