Auck­land – once again judged Aus­trala­sia’s top des­ti­na­tion

Wedding Destinations - - DRESSING THE GROOM -

A laid­back life­style and a vi­brant city en­vi­ron­ment with a blend of har­bours, is­lands, Poly­ne­sian cul­ture and pas­sion for out­stand­ing food, wine and shop­ping - it‘s no won­der Auck­land‘s life­style is reg­u­larly judged among the best in the world.

In it’s lat­est ac­co­lade Auck­land once again beat Syd­ney, Bora Bora, The Whitsunday Is­lands and Fiji’s Ya­sawa Is­lands to take out the ti­tle for Aus­trala­sia’s top des­ti­na­tion in the 2012 World Travel Awards.

Auck­land’s lo­ca­tion be­tween the Pa­cific Ocean and the Tas­man Sea, with its 48 vol­canic cones, 30,000 hectares of na­tive bush, dozens of Hau­raki Gulf Is­lands and rugged Waitakere Rangtes, pro­vides a be­daz­zling range of set­tings for mem­o­rable wed­ding cer­e­monies. With close to 1.5 mil­lion res­i­dents, Auck­land is the coun­try‘s largest metropo­lis and the world‘s largest Poly­ne­sian city.
