Auckland is New Zealand's largest city, settled between the two harbours of the Waitemata which leads to the Pacific Ocean on the eastern side, and the Manukau Harbour leading to the Tasman sea at the west. A truly cosmopolitan city, it features world-class shopping & restaurants, and easy access to a range of natural experiences, such as the wild west coast beaches of Karekare & Piha, the Hauraki Gulf which is famed for sailing and the America's Cup, and the site of over 50 dormant volcanoes who's cones dot the city - the most iconic being Rangitoto which is often the iconic symbol of the city it overlooks from the Waitemata.
