Nice large park to walk, run, or picnic. Auckland Museum located in the park.

Nice big park to visit especially if visiting the Auckland museum on the hill; some paths are pretty steep so be ready if walking there. Saw some runners, so great place to run.

It´s a beautiful garden and it actually surpasses the ones I've seen in neighboring Australia. The place offers nice trails for walks and scenic spots for picture taking.

Domain is close to the lovely area of Parnell. Easy to walk from one side to another. Lovely duck pond and beautiful winter gardens. Disappointed by the fern garden especially the signs about rat poison!

The Domain can be accessed from Central Auckland either by car, bus or if energetic by walking. In Spring the Centennial Entrance is a mass of Cherry Blossom. Higher up is the Wintergardens with 2 large greenhouses with nearby the Valkyrie Fountain & 100 Year Commemoration Fountain. There is also on the top of the hill the War Memorial Museum

I like going to Auckland Domain for a walk, it just feels like going into nature without having to go far from the city centre. I especially love visiting the fernery and the Wintergardens!

There is more to the domain than meets the eye. Down towards the Parnell end (to the right of the museum) are some forest walks - its like you are in the Waitakere Ranges despite the Sky Tower being visible just before you head in. The Winter gardens are free and such a delight. The museum is free for Auckland... More

I visit this place whenever I need to refresh myself from my hectic life. A well-maintained landscape, Auckland Domain adds treasure to Auckland city. Not too far from the CBD and Auckland Uni, this place boasts walking trails, museum, garden, playground and pond.
