Auckland Domain

Fodor's Review

Saturday cricketers, Sunday picnickers, and morning runners are some of the Aucklanders who enjoy this rolling, 340-acre park—not to mention loads of walkers, particularly the "Remuera Bobs," women with rich husbands who like their wives trim and young looking. Running trails range from easy to challenging, and organized 10-km (6-mile) runs occur throughout the year. The Domain contains some magnificent sculpture as well as the domed Wintergardens (open daily

10–4), which houses tropical and seasonally displayed hothouse plants. In summer watch the local paper for free weekend-evening concerts, which usually include opera and fireworks. Take a bottle of wine and a basket of goodies and join the locals—up to 300,000 per show. While the Domain is safe during the day it is not a place to be at night unless you're there for a concert with a big crowd.
