From Wikipedia

The Auckland urban area (/ˈɔːklənd/, awk-lənd), in the North Island of New Zealand, is the largest and most populous urban area in the country. Auckland has a population of 1,418,000, which constitutes 32 percent of the country’s population.[3] It is part of the wider Auckland Region, which includes the rural areas and towns north and south of the urban area, plus the islands of the Hauraki Gulf, resulting in a total population of 1,529,300[3] that is governed by the Auckland Council. Auckland also has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world.[4] In Māori, Auckland’s name is Tāmaki Makaurau and the transliterated version of Auckland is Ākarana.

Why visit Auckland

Auckland. As far as cities go, it’s nice, clean, safe, and there’s plenty of stuff to keep you occupied. With that said, considering all the unique natural wonders in this country, this is not the place where one ought to spend a lot of time. Sleep off your jetlag here for a day or two, rent a car, and hit the road.
