Auckland

The '''Auckland urban area''' ( In Māori (Māori language), Auckland's name is '''Tāmaki Makaurau''' and the transliterated version of Auckland is '''Ākarana'''.

The Auckland urban area (as defined by Statistics New Zealand) ranges to Waiwera in the north, Kumeu in the northwest, and Runciman in the south. It is not contiguous; the section from Waiwera to Whangaparaoa Peninsula is separate from its nearest neighbouring suburb of Long Bay (Long Bay, New Zealand). Auckland lies between the Hauraki Gulf of the Pacific Ocean to the east, the low Hunua Ranges to the south-east, the Manukau Harbour to the south-west, and the Waitakere Ranges and smaller ranges to the west and north-west. The central part of the urban area occupies a narrow isthmus (List of isthmuses) between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the few cities in the world to have two harbours on two separate major bodies of water.

The 2014 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Auckland 3rd place in the world on its list, while the ''Economist's (Economist Intelligence Unit)'' World's most liveable cities index of 2011 ranked Auckland in 9th place. In 2010, Auckland was classified as a Beta World City (Global city) in the World Cities Study Group's inventory by Loughborough University. http: www.lboro.ac.uk gawc world2010t.html "The World According to GaWC 2008"
