The Auckland Domain is the city's oldest park and also one of the largest since it covers about 75 hectares (185 acres) of land in the Grafton Suburb.

We took a short walk from the Mercure Hotel in the Waterfront District of the city to check out the attractions in the Auckland Domain.

Some of these attractions include the Auckland War Memorial Museum, the Winter Garden, the Historic Gardens, the Duck Ponds, nature trails, and a variety of sculptures.

My favorite part of the park was photographing the amazing collection of flowers in the Winter Garden's two greenhouses.

The main entrance to the Auckland Domain is on Park Road by the Auckland Hospital with other vehicle accessible entrances at Stanley St., Titoki St., and Stanley Street.
