About Auckland

Auckland is New Zealand’s most populous city and is a multi-cultural hub of food, music, arts, and culture.

Also known as Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland sprawls over volcanic hills and around twin harbours, offering an exhilarating mix of natural wonders and urban adventures.

Auckland offers an urban environment where most people live within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails, and a dozen enchanting holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine, and shopping, and you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland, New Zealand, our largest and most diverse city.
