Auckland

Auckland, known as the “City of Sails,” is a beautiful city on the North Island, with spectacular beaches and hiking trails, award-winning wineries, and exciting cultural and adventure activities like the SkyJump, a 192 meter jump from the top of the Sky Tower, the tallest tower in the southern hemisphere. First settled around 1350, the Auckland Ishtmus was populated by the native Māori people, until the Europeans arrived. It is estimated that the Māori population peaked around twenty thousand. Today, the Auckland area has a population of nearly 1.5 million people, which is over 25% of New Zealand’s total population.

One of the few cities in the world to have a harbor on each of two major bodies of water, the Tasman sea on the west and the South Pacific ocean on the east, the city is surrounded by rainforest covered mountain ranges and nearly 53 volcanic centers that make up the Auckland Volcanic Field. There are also several nearby islands that are accessible by ferry, including Waiheke (the ‘island of wine’), and Rangitoto Island (a dormant volcano). The key architectural landmarks in the city include the Sky Tower, Harbor bridge, Town Hall and the Ferry building.
