I ♥ Auckland - Auckland Wintergardens

 Built in 1921 the Auckland Wintergardens is a protected heritage site. Close to Auckland Domain and the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Within the courtyard there is the classical courtyard and pond, and also on site are the temperate glasshouse, tropical hothouse and the fernery. Following are a selection of photos taken by myself, and some courtesy of Auckland Wintergardens...
