Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland is a friendly and attractive place with a high quality of life. Shaped by maunga (volcanic cones), harbours and coastal waters, the landscape blends softly between varying shades of blue and green. From our beaches to our bush and our parks, this colourful and calming scene forever connects us to the whenua (land).
Auckland is home to a diverse range of cultures from all over the world, and because of that, there is never a dull moment.
Auckland is always engaging, interesting and colourful.
Auckland is a thriving urban centre, but our connection to each other gives our city an intimate feel. Auckland is metropolitan, but still maintains a kind and friendly nature.

He whakamarutanga ā-tāone Urban oasis
Surrounded by the Pacific, we let our lifestyle follow its example and flow with ease toward our passions. A mecca for water sports, from kayaking to swimming and surfing to sailing, we live our lives close to the water.
We connect modern experiences, like the America’s Cup, to our ancestral roots by nurturing our relationship with nature and protecting our land and waters as kaitiaki (guardians). The land is a taonga, a gift from our tūpuna (ancestors), and we take care to ensure our urban development respects our environment. Our values make Auckland a city like no other; they are a bridge between our nature, our culture and our future. Here, we have found balance in every part of our existence.
Our city is a restorative urban oasis where the quality of life is perfectly matched by its peaceful lifestyle.
