#FunFact: Auckland’s second name is the City Of Sails
Featuring two major harbours and surrounded by endless water vistas, it’s no surprise that Auckland is a magnet for sailing enthusiasts.

View over O'Neill Bay ad the astonishing orange clay cliffs, backed by green farm paddocks at the rear and bush regrowth as the front. Quite the contrasting sight when seen in pano.⁠

Taken from the high point on the Te Henga Walkway.⁠

#DidYouKnow : Auckland is home to over 50 volcanoes
🌋 Built on one of the world’s youngest volcanic fields, Auckland is dotted with over 50 volcanoes, each originating from a magma source located 100 kilometres below the city.

Popular locations include Pigeon Mountain, a much-loved hiking spot fringed by wetlands and mangroves; and Mount Rotskill, which boasts dizzying views from the summit. Onepoto Domain is a common haunt for native birdlife, which also features perfect explosion craters.
