If you want a quiet pace to have a picnic lunch,or even the more traditional pie and sammies from the local vietnamese bakery,
I thoroughly recommend the romatically named wintergarden, one of the most benign remnants of colonialism in new zealand, two sprawling late victorian neo gothic glass -houses, full of verdigris covered statues and carniverous plants,and bierdslyesque wishing wells.
Set in the grounds of the domain,surrounding the forbiddingly named war memorial museum, the wintergarden reflects the other sade of the late victorian coin,lushness and exoticism and a faintly eliotian odor of decay
