Auckland Domain, Auckland
(4.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Auckland's oldest park, Auckland Domain can also be considered the city's most interesting green space. The 75 hectare (185 acre) area has been developed around the explosion crater of an extinct volcano, as evidenced by its many "tuff rings," which form a natural amphitheater. Several sports fields stretch along the floor of the crater, while one of the city's most-visited tourist attractions, the Auckland War Memorial, sits high up on the rim. Enjoy a leisurely stroll among the towering trees, feed the noisy ducks, and admire the verdant ferns of the winter gardens. If you get hungry during your visit, you can pick up snacks at one of the many kiosks. Alternatively, pack a picnic. Put Auckland Domain into our Auckland itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Nice big park to visit especially if visiting the Auckland museum on the hill; some paths are pretty steep so be ready if walking there. Saw some runners, so great place to run. 
  • It´s a beautiful garden and it actually surpasses the ones I've seen in neighboring Australia. The place offers nice trails for walks and scenic spots for picture taking. 
  • The Auckland Domain are huge!!! You can walk , relex , look at the wintergarden trees , the beautiful floweres, and enjoy nature.

  • I love Lovers Walk after a good rain, cool house & hot house are worth a visit so is the Museum and an ice cream @ Wintergarden Kiosk, bring bread for the ducks (only feed them on the grass). AA+ facilities here.
  • Lovely park on a sunny day. Very good place to exercise. Field is well maintained. Auckland Museum close by as well as the Winder Gardens.
  • Strong Pokemon game, strangely enough me and my gf caught a Haunting at exactly 12 on the monuments there. Also its a Grouthleif nest :D
  • Nice big park. Some good short trails. Museum and greenhouse only things I know of on site. Hard to find good free parking on weekends.
  • Very nice park location in Grafton. There are plenty of things to see: the winter gardens, a large duck pond and the Auckland War Museum. There are lots of open fields for playing sports like rugby, fútbol and cricket.
