About Auckland

Auckland will host WCGALP 2018, as New Zealand's largest city, it is also the international gateway to the rest of the country. Located in the North Island, Auckland's waterside location has fostered the locals' love affair with the sea, earning this place the nickname "City of Sails". Auckland has so much to see and do - there's plenty of entertainment for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks. To get a taste of some of Auckland's unique activities click here.
