Auckland's botanic gardens. Quite big and a huge expanse, something different blooming everytime. Good for a weekend afternoon and stroller friendly. There are sometimes musicians and train rides. Relatively flat and not that big when you have gotten used to it.
Pictureque iconic experience for all visitors. Even in winter this place was stunning. It is so well kept. The roses are my favourite but really it's a wondeful palce to spend an entire day. The cafe is great - really good food and coffee. gets very busy as this is a must for huge numbers of tourists.
This is a very beautiful place to visit even in winter. Really cool children's garden with lots of things to discover. Its a good place to bring your dog for a walk with a nice big off leash section. Nice cafe and they even have bowls of water for the dogs.
