Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Auckland Region / Auckland / Auckland Domain
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. Put Auckland Domain on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Auckland trip maker tool.

It is a wonderful place to enjoy either in the gardens or walking through the Bush or the museum. I love exploring area and all it has to offer. This is am awesome spot and from the museum has outstanding vistas of the harbour too
I love it here. My son enjoyed our tour esp. when he saw the dinosaur bones and he also played with some interactive games found inside. There's a lot of things to see and explore inside the museum and it's worth it. For a tourist we have paid for 28 nzd per person and my son is free as he is still 3 yrs old. If you are a resident in NZ then it is free of charge.
Very well organized, kids friendly and very informative museum. Every now and then you will find something interesting to attract the public. Overall a perfect place not only for individuals but also for friends, family and kids time. Love everytime we are here.

I always love this park it's beautiful even on a rainy day. Great for a nice walk along the paths, picnics on the grass or sitting and watching the ducks in the pond. All the Pohutukawa in bloom is the just wonderful too.
