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.

This is an expansive, beautiful park with many trails. Good views at the top where the museum is located. Hike through the park in the late morning then have lunch in central Auckland. more »
We went to the Chinese Lantern Festival. There is plenty of space.. it looks beautiful with all the lanterns!!! Unfortunately they're not there all year round. Its a nice, safe place..
Beautiful Auckland space, sealed pathways throughout the domain. A few tree roots causing lifting to pavements which maybe difficult to traverse for mobility users. Would be fantastic if more crossings were accessible like they do for the Lantern Festival.
