Auckland Region is home to well over 1.4 million people and is mainly the urban sprawl of Auckland... hence the name.
In 2010, Auckland's four city councils, three district councils, and the over-arching regional council were merged into one "super' city council. Very logical, but for some reason I can't quite fathom, not so popular with the average Aucklander. Anyway, although the Auckland Region still exists geo-politically, Auckland City and Auckland Region are now, for all intents and purposes, ONE thing in 2013 (as I write this). So, check out this page and my Auckland page for advice and my views of my home city.
Auckland has about a third of New Zealand's population and is also the most cosmopolitan place in the country. You'll be able to experience a range of cultural influences ranging from Pacific markets to the finest mediterranean cuisine.
To the north and west of the urban areas are well regarded wineries and vineyards. You can sit in an olive grove and sip fine wine accompanied by delicious and original food. If you want to you can hit the city's nightclubs, cruise to a range of beautiful islands in the Hauraki Gulf, get lost in dense native bush (forest/woods), or lounge on a sandy beach.
Auckland Region has something for everyone!
- Pros:New Zealand's most cosmopolitan region.
- Cons:A poor public transport network outside the city centre.
- In a nutshell:Something for everyone!
