About Auckland

With a population of approximately 1.5 million, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, the country’s economic hub and the gateway to New Zealand and the world.

Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to be flanked by two separate bodies of water located as it is, on a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean.

The city is often referred to as the “City of Sails” due to Aucklanders’ love of water sports and the sea. Auckland’s unique geographic position means you can live in a large city but still be close to stunning beaches, tranquil islands and idyllic bush reserves. You can kayak on sparkling harbours in the morning and hike in green subtropical forests in the afternoon.

Auckland is known for its shopping with local and international designer boutiques. Add to that great cafés, restaurants and bars, excellent theatres, galleries and museums, and vibrant multi- cultural influences. It’s clear why Auckland has been ranked third out of 223 world cities for quality of life.*
