The Wintergarden is a lovely, historic glass house featuring a central courtyard. We enjoyed a stroll and photos there as we ran out of time to visit the Museum (also in the Domain). The Domain is a lovely large parkland that would be great for a picnic.

A place of history but in a modern way. Don't forget a visit to the kids area - interactive and enjoyable for children. A great idea for a rainy day.

Auckland domain is huge and is well worth a few hours. It houses the Auckland Museum, Botanic Gardens, Winter Gardens, and more. The Winter Gardens are beautiful and interesting, and it's great to wander around the Botanic Gardens.

,Went for a walk past the duck pond and through the lovers trail. We saw two pairs of the eastern rosella, an introduced species of parrot. This walk took about two hours and it was amazing to see so many different species of tree and ferns. We didn't have time to visit the museum but it looked pretty cool from... More

The domain itself is massive and is a great place to have a walk or just to relax under a tree. The museum is worth a visit as well.

Lovely, well established gardens with avenues of trees, wide open lawns and great views over the bay. The Museum dominates the hill and is a good place to visit also.

I have been to better parks. Nothing special about this one. I visited it on Xmas day so the museum was closed (btw, everything is closed on Xmas day in Auckland, you cant even find a restaurant to eat.

Visited the free Winter Gardens. Lovely temperate, tropical and fernery areas. Domain itself was massive. Lovely walk was had over the lawns. We didn't visit the museum. However, from the exterior it was an impressive Georgian design. Worth a visit.
