Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is a truly multicultural metropolis. A beautiful natural landscape, urban environment and diverse cultures make Auckland a dynamic global city.

Diverse geography and warm, humid climate has inspired a lifestyle that is regularly ranked in the world’s top ten. Visitors can explore rugged, untouched wilderness on Great Barrier Island or enjoy wine tasting at wineries and vineyards on Waiheke Island. A trek through the Waitakere 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.

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™.
