With a population of 1.5 million and home to one in three New Zealanders, Auckland is the nation’s largest city, and the country’s financial and economic powerhouse.

Auckland’s modern, clean city centre is buzzing with shopping precincts, waterfront cafés and restaurants, outstanding attractions and superb events.  All this is nestled in a wider setting of sparkling harbours, native forests, ancient volcanic cones and beautiful beaches, which tempt visitors with an amazing range of things to see and do.

Auckland’s cosmopolitan character reflects a rich cultural melting pot, with strong Māori, Polynesian and European heritage, added to by many other cultures from around the world, – a diversity that’s represented in our cuisine, architecture, art, music and events.
