Life in Auckland, New Zealand

06 Oct

This year, Auckland has been rated the 3rd most liveable city in the world. Nearly one third of the New Zealand population has found a home in Auckland: they seem to enjoy the buzzing city life coupled with the opportunity to reach the seaside or countryside in half an hour. 

It is the warmest centre of New Zealand and one of the sunniest. Though they still have a proper winter, the lowest temperature recorded is -3,09 Celsius degrees. The city is built on a volcanic field that counts 53 volcanoes: they are considered extinct, although the volcanic field itself is classified as dormant. 

The city is the most cosmopolitan of the country with inhabitants coming from Europe, Asia, the Pacific Islands and Latin America. Being quite similar to any big European capital, Auckland will feel familiar whilst having that taste of far away.  

New Zealand culture is a mix of European, Pacific and Maori influences that are reflected in the local food and music. One of the New Zealand specialities is the pavlova (meringue-based dessert). They also love seafood, roast lamb and fish and chips; all served with a dollop of Watties’ tomato sauce. 

Another positive aspect of Auckland is its climate; it is mild, sunny and generally warm (we previously stated that the lowest temperature recorded was just below zero Celsius degrees). The educational and employment opportunities are numerous. In terms of leisure, this is the place to be if you’re into sports: hiking, sailing, skating, surfing, swimming, rugby, tennis; just take your pick!

If you’re not that into sports, there are many cultural activities available like the Auckland Museum that tells the tale of New Zealand, the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki or the Horwick Historical Village.

If you’re ready for a life-changing experience, Auckland is the place for you! Immerse yourself in a different islander culture and learn some new expressions like “bring a plate” (bonus point if you know what this means to a Kiwi!).
