The majestic "City of Sails" is surrounded by water, which defines its sparkling appeal. The magnificent harbour is reminiscent of other famous waterside cities, but with its own unique charm. The site of the 2000 & 2003 America’s Cup, Auckland has a rich maritime history. Auckland is relatively small geographically, which makes it a pleasure to explore on foot. It has a dynamic population that makes it a cosmopolitan, sophisticated city, with an easy, friendly and comfortable feel to it.
