Auckland is New Zealand’s commercial hub. It’s also the largest Polynesian city in the world and the most multi-cultural, with over 180 different ethnic groups. Auckland is considered one of the world’s most liveable cities, ranking third in the 2017 Quality of Living survey conducted annually by the global HR consultants Mercer. It’s held that slot since 2012. A similar survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Auckland 9th of 140 cities.
The region is a food-lovers’ paradise, with trendy cafes, ethnic eateries and award-winning restaurants. Being located between two harbours, fresh seafood is an Auckland speciality, and the region also features a range of vineyards and olive groves.
Aucklanders can choose between a sophisticated urban lifestyle, living in the suburbs or moving a short distance to the countryside to live on a lifestyle block surrounded by farmland and native bush.
Over 1.4 million people live in Auckland - around a third of New Zealand’s population. It’s the region of choice for over half of new migrants attracted by a good climate, stunning natural environment with beautiful harbours, beaches, and parks and its vibrant, cosmopolitan centre. As the largest City on the North Island, Auckland is an international city that is welcoming and safe.
The close proximity to Manukau and the North Shore mean that the attractions within the regions are all easily accessible.
