The Auckland Domain was originally intended as an area for recreation and a reserve for wild animals and plants. Today, it's one of the largest parks in Auckland and remains popular with locals who come here to walk or play sports like cricket or rugby union. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to play your favourite sport in such a beautiful location?
One of the most popular attractions within the Auckland Domain is the Wintergardens. These two large glasshouses exhibit temperate or tropical plants and are surrounded by an enclosed courtyard with a fishpond and fountains. It's the perfect place to explore and discover some exotic plant species from around the world. You can even touch some of them!
If you're interested in history and culture, the Auckland Museum is a must-visit for anyone wanting to learn about the rich cultural heritage of New Zealand and its people.
For those who love hiking and exploring, the native forest walk is a short but interesting track that winds through a hillside section of native forest. You can get up close and personal with some of New Zealand's native flora and fauna and enjoy some stunning views out over Auckland city.
