All you need to know about Auckland

With a population of over 1.2 million, Auckland is home to over a quarter of New Zealanders. With a vibrant city centre, it’s dominated by a very suburban style of buildings, which gives the city a very low population density.

Auckland is based near the Auckland Volcanic Field where there are 50 volcanic vents, several of which have produced extensive amounts of lava. Most of the volcanoes have been quarried away and the individual volcanoes are all extinct, although the volcanic field itself is only dormant.

Auckland is popularly known as the 'City of Sails' because the harbour is home to hundreds of yachts and has more boats and sailors per capita, than any other city in the world. The Viaduct Harbour hosted two America's Cup challenges, and its cafes, restaurants, and clubs add to Auckland's vibrant nightlife. The city also enjoys a climate of warm, humid summers and mild, damp winters.

The airport is located in Mangere, a western suburb of Manukau City, and is 21 km south of Auckland city centre.
