It requires a little uphill trek if walking to the Domain but this is through attractive parkland. Once at the top there are plenty of trails to follow either in the shade or the open.

The Domain is such a great space for Aucklanders to get away from it all, and still be in the heart of the city. We visited on Boxing Day, so that the kids could test out their water guns without re-moistening the washing on the clothesline at home!

Ok, so Auckland isn't that big on the world scale but The Domain is provides surprising peace and quiet in many different spaces. It's beautifully maintained and offers a wide variety of places to explore by walking or cycling.

The Domain is a great place to visit-lots of green space, birds to feed, trees to climb, and views across waitemata harbour. Also worth having a refreshment in the cafe. Museum worth dropping into also.

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.

Domain is close to the lovely area of Parnell. Easy to walk from one side to another. Lovely duck pond and beautiful winter gardens. Disappointed by the fern garden especially the signs about rat poison!

The Domain can be accessed from Central Auckland either by car, bus or if energetic by walking. In Spring the Centennial Entrance is a mass of Cherry Blossom. Higher up is the Wintergardens with 2 large greenhouses with nearby the Valkyrie Fountain & 100 Year Commemoration Fountain. There is also on the top of the hill the War Memorial Museum
