Auckland Domain, Auckland Reviews

  • The biggest park in the central city, and you can find lots of people having their exercise. The Lovers Lane is great to walk especially during spring time when the cherry trees are blossoming. The Auckland War Memorial Museum is also located in this park. the other highest ground in the Auckland Domain is a sacred Maori burial site, so please have some respect when you're around that area. The domain grand stand was a great building with great wooden floor interior, unfortunately, now its outside is mostly occupied by hobos; although they won't hassle you, you might feel a bit uncomfortable.

  • Went to the museum with the kids, the older one liked it youngest was scared. It's a good place for a tour and they had a Lego event that kids would enjoy especially for school holidays. Only problem is parking, you can either pay or look for free street parking which is by luck. Good facilities and very educational. Highly recommend

  • Lantern Festival at the Domain, as always it's an amazing experience with lots to see and do. Some great exhibits, good food, lots of light up trinkets, it's close to public transport, and the staff work hard to keep it reasonably tidy. The crowds are a challenge though, and you end up waiting for things... a lot. The Domain itself is always beautiful, great for a walk, a picnic or to play around. You also have the Museum & Botanic Gardens.

  • A jewel in Auckland’s crown. Huge park with wide open meadows and meandering bush walks. Right at the top is the Auckland museum a grand old building sitting in the middle of this beautiful park, how cool is that. Additionally there are two large ‘glass houses’ known as the wintergardens which are full of exotic and beautiful plants and is a truly magical place to escape the hustle and bustle and recharge your batteries. I like that the city council allows events like the lantern festival to take place here which brings a whole other element at times. Very cool.

  • Beautiful beautiful green space at the heart of the city. Keep walking and you will get to the library and Auckland Domain. You will also find the War Memorial here. Connects to the University of Auckland. Central to CBD and Grafton. The green patch is totally awesome and a setting out of books. Worth for walks or a leisurely book reading in the sun. It is also the location for the yearly Lantern Festival.
