Moving to New Zealand – Auckland
Located in the upper North Island, Auckland is home to over 1.4 million people, representing a third of New Zealand’s total population.
A coastal city, set amidst beautiful harbours, Auckland is a perfect blend of sophisticated city living and outdoor beauty that makes it one of the most desirable destinations in the world. Live where you choose: close to one of the beautiful north shore or eastern beaches, in the west near native bush, or in the city itself.
Auckland is diverse: contemporary lifestyle, cultural heritage, sporting achievements, economic vibrancy and colourful multi-cultural uniqueness, set in a pristine, marine-based environment.
There’s always something going on in Auckland and many events are free: from the Summer Music in the Parks to The Chinese Lantern Festivals. Events are advertised on Heart of the City/Events and Eventfinda. As well as free events, Mount Smart Stadium and Vector Arena both host an array of concerts during the year; most recently Adele, Pink and Ed Sheeran visited to sold out crowds.
Auckland is very proud of its heritage, it’s access to beaches and island getaways as well as its modern, sophisticated and urbane city centres.
