Auckland Domain Reviews & Ratings
So beautiful! A lovely place to hang with your friends, have a picnic, see the museum, go out for lunch, visit the gardens, ride an electric scooter, see some ducks, sit by the pond, lay down in your lunch break, attend events, practice yoga or sport, people watch and relax!! As you can see, the domain in peaceful, clean and gets a lot of care :) A+++
Large area of parkland near the centre of Auckland. Felt peaceful with views out towards the harbour from the museum. Auckland museum is worth a visit itself. The Wintergardens are lovely and there is a good cafe there as well. Enjoyed the best part of a (sunny) day there. Very relaxing
A serene oasis in the middle of the city. I always enjoy coming here with its many different offerings. Particularly enjoy walking through some of the relaxing areas in the woods or gardens.
lovely place to chill, nice walks and trails inside the the forest, a war memorial museum, wildlife, and just a really nice place to relax or read a book.. haven't finished exploring this place but really look forward to it.. there's even a cafe, winter garden, lovers lane etc
Very beautiful hill. Definitely recommend checking out the architecture of his building and the fields around it. Lots of walkways for you to enjoy with your friends and family when visiting the area also some public restrooms down the hill a short ways. Only about a 25-minute walk from the center of town.
