Auckland Domain, Auckland Reviews
Beautiful place. Unbelievably close to the city. Great views of the harbor. Relaxing place. This is a place for all seasons. Always a great experience to stroll through the greenery. The Winter Garden and the Duck Pond in the Domain are a major attraction for kids and families. Parking can be difficult on busy days. Good public transport links are there from the city.
Haven't been back since big renovation. It looks good layout. We love the open atrium. The children area is absolutely beautiful . Wish I can bring my grand kids here next time.
Beautiful forest within the city. Just a short walk from downtown will give you access to many miles of trails. Walk around the Domain to the museum. Take a stop and enjoy the flowers in the Winter Garden. Then stroll back to the city down Lovers walkway. The trails stay shaded throughout the day.
Ideal place all year round to enjoy the out doors. There is limited parking around and parking on the grass is prohibited. However, in the domain precinct you will also find sculptures jotted throughout, the Rotunda, a duckpond with plenty of wildlife situated next to a Cafe and restaurant serving ice cream and coffee amongst other favourites. Here you will also find the luscious winter gardens open all year round offering an array of tropical plants and ponds full of colourful fish. Don't forget your camera. Finally on the very top of the hill you will find a very grand building and that is the Auckland Museum. With wondrous displays of the history and the modern world alike there is something for everyone to enjoy as well as an interactive area for the kids and kids at heart. Free to all Auckland residents and $5 charge for others. The domain is a day out in itself. Enjoy!
Do you want a nice open space? How about some walks in amongst the trees? Check out some flowers? Grab some lunch? The Domain offers all these, and such a short walk from the central city. Do take the time to visit the Winter Garden, walk the Lovers Walk, and then sit under a tree and contemplate for a while. Oh and the museum is here too!
