Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city and the first stop on our tour. Located on the North Island, nearly 1 out of 3 New Zealand’s 4.8 million residents live in Auckland. The city is often mistaken as the country’s capital, however that is located about 400 miles (644 km) to the south in Wellington.

The ‘City of Sails’ city center is adjacent to several wharfs. They are hubs of transportation, tourism, and entertainment. We got a hotel in town so we could explore the city by foot, train, and ferry.
