Auckland / Tāmaki Makaurau
Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is a truly multicultural metropolis, with one in three residents born elsewhere. A beautiful natural landscape, urban environment and diverse cultures come together to make Auckland an urban oasis and a dynamic global city.
Named Lonely Planet’s number one city to visit in 2022, Auckland’s diverse geography and warm, humid climate has inspired a lifestyle that regularly places the city among the world’s most liveable. Visitors can explore rugged, untouched wilderness on Aotea Great Barrier Island or enjoy wine tasting at wineries and vineyards on Waiheke Island. A trek through the Waitākere Ranges will feature stunning waterfalls and the nearby black-sand beaches of West Auckland are an unmissable sight.
Thrillseekers can bungy off the Auckland Harbour Bridge or skydive over the wild west coast. Foodies will enjoy world-class restaurants, traditional Māori cooking and experiences that make the most of New Zealand’s natural pantry. Auckland has everything that could feature on a dream itinerary, and more.
A place of mana (life force), Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland connects the past and present of Aotearoa New Zealand, and Māori culture is with you wherever you are.
The north shore of Auckland is the home of New Zealand Football, the Future Ferns Development Program, the Northern Football Federation and the Northern Lights National Women’s League team. The Auckland region is also home to the Auckland Football Federation, the Auckland Football National Women’s League team as well as men’s national league teams. Auckland City captured headlines on the international stage by winning the bronze medal at the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2014™.
