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.

  • It is Very Awesome you Can watch The History of Newzealand And There is Free Wifi so you can catch some pokemons^^
  • This park was one of my favorite places in Auckland. Ample space for exercise and leisure, courts to play rugby and cricket, jogging paths, a greenhouse and a museum. Really, a very nice place to be in.
  • Great central Auckland park. The museum is one of Auckland's most iconic buildings in the centre of the park. Also you will find a greenhouse 'winter garden', walking/running paths, sports fields, ponds and more.
  • Amazingly pretty area. Be sure to climb to the top near the museum and take a breathtaking open sky view of the Auckland CBD
  • . (20/02/2016) Beautiful park encompassing Auckland War museum, some amazing walks and different sports fields. Very well maintained. Ideal place to spend a lazy day with family and friends. In addition, hosts community events such as most recently Lantern Festival during which it was awesomely customized including decorations like hanging lanterns and lights from trees, dragon statues, uncountable shops and stalls.
