A 2015 evening view of the Port of Auckland and Auckland City, in North Island, New Zealand. Auckland City, (Māori name is - Tāmaki or Tāmaki-makau-rau, meaning "Tāmaki with a hundred lovers", in reference to the desirability of its fertile land at the hub of waterways in all directions). Auckland is the largest urban area in New Zealand, located in the North Island's Auckland Region, the area governed by Auckland Council, which includes outlying rural areas and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. Auckland lies on and around an isthmus, less than two kilometres wide at its narrowest point, between Mangere Inlet and the Tamaki River. There are two harbours in the Auckland urban area surrounding this isthmus: Waitematā Harbour to the north, which opens east to the Hauraki Gulf and thence to the Pacific Ocean and Manukau Harbour to the south, which opens west to the Tasman Sea. The total coastline of Auckland is 3,702 kilometres (2,300 mi) long. Bridges span parts of both harbours, notably the Auckland Harbour Bridge crossing the Waitematā Harbour west of the Auckland Central Business District (CBD). The Mangere Bridge and the Upper Harbour Bridge span the upper reaches of the Manukau and Waitematā Harbours, respectively. Auckland is a diverse and multicultural city and home to the largest Polynesian population in the world.
