Local information for visitors

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand with a population of about 1.5 million people. Called the
City of Sails, the Waitemata Harbour is within walking distance of the university and it stretches eastward to several popular swimming beaches (including Mission Bay and Kohimarama). The Devonport suburb is a short ferry ride from the Auckland Ferry Building. Some islands worth visiting by ferry include Tiritiri Matangi, Rangitoto and Waiheke. Also within walking distance from the university is Auckland Museum, one of the two most important NZ museums, at the Auckland domain. The Parnell shopping precinct is also close by, as is the main Auckland CBD. Information about Auckland, restaurants, grocery stores, etc will be posted soon.
