Location

New Zealand is a safe and politically-stable country with a high standard of living. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city with a population of 1.5 million. It is the country’s economic and multi-cultural hub. Auckland’s unique geographic position means you can enjoy the city’s great cafés, bars, museums and shopping but still be within half an hour of stunning beaches, mountain bike tracks, nature walks and subtropical islands. Add to that great cafés, restaurants and bars, excellent theatres, galleries and museums, terrific shopping and colourful Polynesian and Asian cultural influences. It’s clear why Auckland is ranked 3rd out of 221 world cities for quality of life.*
