Auckland is New Zealands largest city with a population of 1.5 million people. It is situated in the northern part of the North Island of New Zealand, surrounded by water the Pacific Ocean is on the East Coast, and the Tasman Sea is on the West Coast. It straddles 2 harbours and has many beachside suburbs.
Auckland is the most heavily populated part of New Zealand with sprawling suburbs in the outlying areas covering large areas of land (low density housing). The centre of the city is on the Waitemata Harbour and includes both the business district and residential accommodation (high density housing). Activities available in Auckland are many and varied (www.aucklandtourism.co.nz) and include all water sports particularly in summer. Auckland is called the City of Sails because the harbours are central to city life and yachting is a very popular pastime.
