Te Ara - the Encyclopedia of New Zealand, updated 1-Sep-10 Nearly 70 years later, in January 1838, the Frenchman, Bishop Jean Baptiste Pompallier (1807–1871) arrived in New Zealand as the Vicar Apostolic of Western Oceania. He made New Zealand the centre of his activities covering a vast area in the Pacific. He celebrated his first Mass in New Zealand at Totara Point (Jean Baptiste Pompallier#New Zealand), Hokianga, at the home of Irishman, Thomas Poynton on 13 January 1838. Pompallier was accompanied by members of the Society of Mary (Marists), and more soon arrived. The mission headquarters were established in Kororareka (now called Russell) where a building (now called Pompallier (Pompallier House)) was constructed by the Marists in pisé and a printing press set up. As well as stationing missionaries in the north, Pompallier began work in the Bay of Plenty, and Waikato amongst Māori (Māori people) and in Auckland and Wellington areas amongst European settlers.

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: gawc world2010t.html "The World According to GaWC 2008"
