The Auckland Botanic Gardens is such a amazing place that some people I know even come three times a week although living quite far away from. That’s the place in Auckland you must go if you love gardening, flowers and plant. But not many people know there are also some amazing walk tracks in there. Take a look at the map below, that only gives a hint to help you to find the tracks without worrying get lost at all.
