We came to the Domain Wintergardens this weekend with friends from Wellington who were visiting us for a few days. This is always a favourite place to come and enjoy the beautiful gardens in such a lovely setting. Occasionally we see weddings and always we see people taking tons of photos. But now both of the glasshouses are closed for refurbishment and seismic strengthening. A notice on the exterior of the building mentions it will be closed for 18 months. Keep an eye on the updates here.
Location: Wintergarden Road, Parnell, Auckland

The two Victorian glasshouses were opened in 1913 and one houses beautiful and rare tropical plants while the other one has ever changing displays of seasonal blooms.
I am sure these historic structures will come back even more beautiful.
In the meantime, while we are waiting for this treasure to be re-opened I have included some of my favourite photos from last year and a brief video of my walk here.
