Lots of hours spent in this clean and green park, relaxing and playing soccer with friends. A nice place to breathe again after a day of work.

Great for kids and adults alike. It has gardens, gorgeous trees, cafes and restaurants and the museum. Sooo close to Auckland CBD - you have to go! I love sitting up and watching people play crickets on the weekend - it's such a kiwi thing to do.

This is a really nice huge area of parkland with sports pavilion, Wintergarden and with the museum there too. A very relaxing place for a stroll with a few small inclines to get your heart rate up.

We popped over to the Domain and visited the museum for the WOW exhibition. What a lovely place to visit, great views, well maintained gardens and a very well put together exhibition. Cafe was very average - avoid!

First of all . . .the trees! There is a really beautiful fig tree here that is totally worth the visit alone! This lovely, huge, spacious park has something to please everyone! There are so many different spaces to wander about. Different gardens, and green spaces so close to the CBD make it a place to be used and enjoyed... More
