Auckland – the gateway to New Zealand and also rated as the third most liveable city in the world on the global Mercer Quality of Life Survey. It is New Zealand’s largest city with over 1/3 of our population living here. One of the things that makes Auckland so special is our vibrant melting pot of cultures. This diversity reflected in our cuisine, festivals, art, music, and cultures. From the first Mãori waka (canoes) and colonial ships, Auckland has attracted people of many cultures from far and wide. By the 1890s, the city had a cosmopolitan flavour with dozens of languages heard in the bustling streets and new inhabitants from Europe, China and India. This theme continued throughout the 20th century, particularly in the 1950s when the population was boosted by the post-World War II ‘baby boom’ and many European immigrants from Hungary, Holland and Yugoslavia, later arrived bringing Auckland even more diversity.
