Welcome to Auckland, New Zealand's most "happening" city. It is located in the north of the North Island and is the biggest city in New Zealand, with a population of over 1.5 million. Auckland is a perfect mix of spectacular scenery, scenic walks, fabulous beaches, idyllic islands, delicious food and wine, good shopping and “happening” nightlife. Auckland's blend of harbour, islands, local Maori & Polynesian culture and modern city atmosphere has created a wonderful vibrant city and a perfect tourist destination!
Located at the narrowest point of the North Island, Auckland actually stretches from one side of New Zealand to the other i.e. from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean! It is also popularly known as the "City of Sails" because of the large number of yachts that sail on the Hauraki Gulf and Waitemata Harbour.
Experience the magic of Auckland's top restaurants, cruise on the beautiful harbor and immerse yourself in its local culture and art!
