“Alright place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Come to this place if you haven't seen flowers/plants in different climates. Flowers were not that pretty or looked that alive and kicking. It is a free attraction after all. I would suggest coming here if you have time to kill, but if you have a tight schedule its missable.

“Great for some time out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

This is central Auckland's largest public park (I think), and is home to the museum perched on a hill. Wander through the gardens, follow the sculpture trail, visit the winter gardens, and take some time out in a very relaxing spot.Very accessible - the hop on hop off bus has a stop at the museum.

“An oasis of calm on the city's doorstep...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

I walk around the Domain whenever I stay at the Grafton Oaks and love the sense of space there ... you feel like you're well out of the city and the CBD appears as a magnificent backdrop. GO THERE!

“Flowers, Views and Wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Acres of pathways to explore, lovely floral displays, a nice restaurant/tea room, glass houses, a fernery. Lots of birdlife and butterflies and the Auckland Museum in the centre.
Free parking. What's not to like

“A place I will never forget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Use to go through everyday when I was in Auckland 12 years ago. It was a quiet and lovely place. You can take a walk in some remote path in this region. I went there this time. It is still nice. Spent some time beside the duck pond, but did not see ducks this time.
