Auckland Travel Guide

Auckland is located in the central northern part of New Zealand's North Island. Surrounded on three sides by water, the extraordinary terrain makes this city ideal for sailing. Many of the city's residents have their own private sailboats, which is why Auckland has the reputation for being "The City of a Thousand Sails". There is always a massive fleet of sailboats out on the ocean. It is also New Zealand's confluence of international culture. As you walk down the street, you can see a rich variety of 19th-Century colonial architecture. For a city like Auckland that focuses on nature and actively protects history and culture, there are also all kinds of museums and art galleries, preserving pieces of the indigenous Māori tribes. This quaint and natural city is definitely worth visiting.
