Beautiful Park with some very nice paths. Depending on where you start, there may be some fairly steep hills to go through, but it's well worth it. There's a winter garden just beyond the duck pond that has a lot of interesting plants to check out, just make sure not to touch. There are two indoor gardens that are a little warm and have a great variety of plants and flowers, and there's also a small fern garden that has a very nice path located between the two indoor gardens.
Great park with many attractions in it. The museum being one of the major ones, also the winter gardens are quite popular too. Often has events in the park and is great for walks. There are public toilets spotted around the park, just a matter of finding them. Quite a big park for its central location.
Great place to visit especially on a rainy day. Lots of local and international exhibits, something for all ages. Also has a cafe on site and a large indoor area for eating if you have brought along your prepared lunch/snacks.
Good place to spend you day with family or even on your own. This place offers a nice bush walk, park with ponds and large open fields, summer&winter gardens, cafe and the Auckland Museum with heaps of parking. Museum free to residents (must bring an ID and proof of address)
Essential visit for learning about many aspects of New Zealand history. Although a strong emphasis on the two world wars, the collections show a broader range of subjects that brings to life the social history of New Zealand. Maori history is represented through some wonderful artefacts and descriptive panels.
