Rated among the world's top 10 most liveable cities, Auckland is home to one-third of New Zealanders, including the world’s largest Pacific Island population. This thriving multicultural mix infuses colour and diversity into the region's cuisine, music, art and culture.
Perched on a narrow isthmus between two harbours, life in Auckland revolves around the sea. Its subtropical climate promotes casual coastal living and outdoor adventure and activity.
The region’s diversity of people and landscapes adds another dimension to the experience. Within half an hour of the fashionable boutiques and cafés of downtown Auckland, visitors can be sipping wine at an island vineyard, hiking through rainforest or exploring a black-sand beach on the rugged west coast.
