Auckland - CBD & Suburbs

Sign in to follow this  




Auckland is the most populous urban area in New Zealand and known as the City of Sails. Consecutively ranked as one of the best cities to live in, Auckland is a beautiful city sitting between two natural harbors. Its 1 million residents enjoy the natural beauty attributed to about 48 volcanoes. This means Auckland sits on some of Earth's newest land.


Auckland's Sky Tower is the tallest free standing structure in the southern hemisphere and provides great views of the central business district. You can even jump off with a bungee cord!


Metropolis Residences looking over the city's scenic Albert Park.


Office towers along the CBD's busy Albert Street.


East of the city center, Tamaki Drive becomes a causeway and connects to the suburbs.


The Vero Centre is Auckland's tallest skyscraper and the first one built after the 80's.


One Tree Hill, a terraced volcanic peak with a stone obelisk for the Maori people.


The Northern Motorway passing through some homes on its way to the CBD.

i think it would look more eye-pleasing with the brigatine water mod and some simfox trees..but besides that the construction is well done.

 Well that was pretty awesome, right down to the cars driving on the correct side of the road, and the Auckland water mod...
