It is one of the greatest city parks I know. We stumbled across here on our sightseeing trip and we loved it. Walking along the tracks felt more like being in a forest far away from civilization than actually in the heart of a city. After tiring sightseeing/shopping it is a great place to relax.

Definitely worth a stroll around the gardens particularly on a fine day. The gardens are lovely and would be great to have a picnic if the weather allowed.

It was Chinese new year so there were lots of displays throughout. We caught a bus to the domain and had a leisurely walk back to the city.

I first visited the Auckland Domain during the Lantern Festival and was amazed at how clean, neat and tidy the park was. Entrance was free, there are lots of trees under which to sit and reflect or picnic. Go for a walk under the trees on a sunny afternoon.

We'd come to see the museum but a short walk into the park was definitely worth our time. It would be a hilly walk to the museum, particularly if you're not used to hills, but it's a great walk out and back to the city centre. Lots of lakes and natural landscaped as well as manicured gardens and cushy lawns... More

This is a large park and botanical garden in a dormant volcano, It has so many walking ares and features you could spend a day here. The only downside for me as a stranger is there is not enough information on the park walks.

Went and visited domain gardens and hot house - excellent. Also went to the forest part and saw two native owls asleep. Very hot in the hot houses but the flowers are beautiful
