The Domain Wintergardens is a widely popular landmark in Auckland and has been recognized as one of the Category 1 historic places by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. The venue attracts a lot of tourists because of its unique architecture, and the ever-changing display of the flora found there. The Wintergardens are located within the Auckland Domain, on the Wintergarden road, again signifying the historic importance that the place holds.
The Domain Wintergardens is also renowned for being home to the large Amorphophallus Titanium flower, also known as the corpse flower, which is located within the Tropical House. It was the first place in New Zealand to have this rare kind of flower, which is said to take a period of ten years to fully grow and has the smell of rotting flesh. A stroll in the fern garden is refreshing, with its scenic beauty and the various kinds of birds seen around the area. Plants like cacao, heliconia, etc. are also seen in the glasshouses.
* Please note that this venue will be unavailable for weddings or photography from 1 March 2019 to approximately March 2021 due to seismic strengthening works throughout the Wintergarden complex.
