Nature / Park Must See
Find something for all the family at Queens Park, recognized in New Zealand as one of the nation's most important parks. The 810,000 sq m (8,700,000 sq ft) of this city park offer plenty of space for numerous sporting activities, including an 18-hole golf course, an aviary housing a diverse array of the country's birdlife, and a wealth of botanical gardens. Once a grazing place for cattle, the park now includes an animal reserve where rabbits, fowl, wallabies, and ostriches thrive in their enclosures. A museum and art gallery provide entertainment and education for those interested in local history as well as the wildlife and past of the islands lying off the country's coast.
