City Overview

The city of Auckland is New Zealand’s most populated city and the tourist gateway to the Land Of The Long White Cloud. With a population of 1,495,000 people it represents approximately one third of the entire population of New Zealand.

Positioned at the northern end of New Zealand North Island Auckland is relatively warm and considered to be in a sub-tropical climate zone. It also boasts being one of the few cities in the world with two harbours, one accessing the Pacific Ocean and the other the Tasman Sea. Auckand by night picture courtesy of Chris Gin

A marine playground, Auckland enjoys a generous 3,100km of coastline, which means access to the water is relatively easy from most neighbourhoods.

Auckland also ranks third among the liveable cities leaderboard.
