Eden Park and Auckland Domain
Auckland Travel Blog› entry 9 of 11 › view all entries
My trip to NZ is comming to an end so I wanted to visit the last couple of places I hadnt yet seen. First stop was Eden Park. The view from the top is amazing! Once you reach the top there is a massive crater (which your not aloud to climb down - although people do) which is a lot bigger then it seems from the pictures I have seen. Quite amazing. I spent about an hour here taking photos of the crater itself as well as the views of the city.
I then walked to Auckland Domain - great trees and the museam has to the the biggest I have ever seen - I didnt actually go in but entry is $10 and goes towards the maintance of the building etc. The main thing I wanted to see was the Wintergarden which has a fantastic fernary and other sorts of plants. A nice area to spend the afternoon. After this I went to Parnell - VERY posh area - i dont think i have seen that many BMW/Mercedes all at once! Here I went to the Rose Gardens - not the best I have seen but I think i visited at the wrong time of year as a lot of the rose beds were being replanted. Having seeing enough of Parnell, I made my way home - exhusted!!
