Auckland friendliest city in the world

Media release
07 August 2014

Auckland has been named the friendliest city in the world by one of the most renowned international luxury travel magazines, Conde Nast Traveller.

The annual readership survey named Auckland as the only New Zealand city to feature in the top ten list.

Auckland Mayor Len Brown says: “The latest findings continue to underpin Auckland’s aspirations to be the world’s most liveable city – a truly global city and a natural playground that is continually building its international reputation.”

It’s particularly pleasing coming from a magazine of the standing of Conde Nast, one of the world’s premier travel publications.”

Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) Chief Executive Brett O’Riley says this is a glowing endorsement of the region and should be celebrated by all Aucklanders.

According to Conde Nast Traveller, Auckland people are friendly and their humour and view on life is something to aspire to.

The latest survey follows Auckland being named one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit in Lonely Planet’s 2014 Best in Travel Guide. Auckland is also ranked as the third most liveable city in the 2013 Mercer Quality of Life Survey.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
