Ancient rainforests cover the Waitakere Ranges, and the cones of the city’s 48 dormant volcanoes provide unique city parks. Sparkling waters surround the isthmus upon which Auckland has grown providing a playground for sailing, parasailing, surfing, fishing, dolphin, and whale watching.
Auckland is blessed with a sunny climate with average daytime temperatures ranging between 14C and 24C. The business district, Sky Tower, museums, art galleries, Viaduct Harbour (base of the Americas Cup), fabulous shops, movie theatres, performing arts venues, world-class restaurants, cafes, and bars are all to be found in central Auckland.
All of this goes to earn Auckland a lifestyle that is ranked amongst the highest in the world.
