Regularly ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city and home to almost a third of its population. If you like water views, this is the place for you as the heart of the city occupies a narrow strip of land between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean.
The economic hub of new zealand
New Zealand’s most multicultural and cosmopolitan city, Auckland is where most migrants choose to settle. It has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world and a higher proportion of Asians than any other city in New Zealand. Auckland is also the economic epicentre of New Zealand and where multinational corporations typically choose to base their offices.
Hemmed in with picturesque beaches and lush wine regions, Auckland has the critical mass of people required to support a vibrant restaurant, live music and arts scene. While it is small by world standards, it is at least five times larger than any of New Zealand’s other cities and the logical choice for those who desire the urban lifestyle.
