Whanganui was crowned the most beautiful small city and Hamilton the most beautiful large city as its mentioned in the map of New Zealand with cities. Judge and Keep New Zealand Beautiful chief executive Heather Saunderson said winners prioritised making their environments vibrant and rubbish-free. The duo were tied for the first prize in the Keep New Zealand Beautiful Awards, with judges instead splitting the category to include the two. Northland city is beaches, beaches and more beaches. The weather is also particularly clement up these ways, and makes for a great place to live.
Queenstown city and the Lakes District, the South Island internationally renowned tourist area, has been rated as New Zealand most affluent place to live. Hawke Bay is the perfect city in New Zealand to live if you are into the finer things in life. That is to say, if you can see yourself inhabiting a piece of New Zealand that is famed for its sensational food, world-class wine and beautiful art-deco architecture. Taranaki city as you can see in the map of New Zealand with cities is the lure of the ocean and mountain that call many people to this west coast region. The fact that you can snowboard in the morning and surf in the afternoon during the winter months is one of the chief appeals for the locals.
The West Coast of the South Island has recently been named the happiest place to live in the country. It might be slightly out of the way – and you would be forgiven for having not heard too much about it – but with its calm, tranquil way of life, it is not hard to see why the locals love it. Waiheke Island is particularly popular with tourists, but why would not you want to live on an island that is home to one of the most beautiful beaches to be found in the entire country. Mount Manganui – or The Mount, as it is referred to by locals – is a bit of a hip-and-happening spot on the east coast of the North Island. Although it has been swallowed up by the expansion of Tauranga (see the map of New Zealand with cities), it is still very much its own place and retains a separate identity to the bigger city.

New Zealand is a predominantly urban country, with 72 percent of the population living in 16 main urban areas and 53 percent living in the four major cities of Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, and Hamilton as its shown in the map of New Zealand with major cities. New Zealand cities generally rank highly on international livability measures. For instance, in 2010 Auckland was ranked the world 4th most liveable city and Wellington the 12th by the Mercer Quality of Life Survey.
With a population of just under 1.5m, Auckland is comfortably the biggest city in New Zealand as its mentioned in the map of New Zealand with major cities. It is right up there with the best cities in the world when it comes to shopping, places to eat and things to do. New Zealand capital city is number two on the list of major cities with a population of 405,000, it is often referred to as one of the ‘coolest’ cities in the world. Christchurch is known as the Garden City and is New Zealand third largest city with a population of 389,700. As the name would suggest, Christchurch is a city full of parks and gardens and that makes it a special place to visit at any time of year, but particularly in the shoulder seasons of autumn and spring when the colours in the city can be pretty spectacular.
Coming in at number four on the list of New Zealand major cities is Hamilton or ‘the Tron’ as it is affectionately known with a population of 230,000. Situated on the banks of the mighty Waikato River, Hamilton is the main city on the region of Waikato. It is a great place for a stopover on a trip to Raglan, Waitomo or further south to Taupo or Rotorua. Tauranga is one of New Zealand fastest growing cities and for good reason with a population of 134,400 as you can see in the map of New Zealand with major cities. Finding itself in the top five, Tauranga and Mt Maunganui offer up a great lifestyle for people young and old. With beautiful sandy beaches, and the iconic Mt Maunganui in the backdrop, this is a popular holiday destination for a lot of Kiwis.

Wellington (play /ˈwɛlɪŋtən/) is the capital city and second most populous urban area of New Zealand as its mentioned in the Capital of New Zealand map. It is at the southwestern tip of the North Island, between Cook Strait and the Rimutaka Range. It is home to 393,400 residents. The Wellington urban area is the major population centre of the southern North Island, and is the seat of the Wellington Region – which in addition to the urban area covers the Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa.
Wellington holds the distinction of being the world southernmost capital city. In 2008, Wellington was classified as a Gamma World City in the World Cities Study Group inventory by Loughborough University. The 2010 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Wellington 12th in the world. In 2011 Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2011 named Wellington as fourth in its Top 10 Cities to Visit in 2011, referring to the New Zealand capital as the "coolest little capital in the world" as you can see in the Capital of New Zealand map.
In 1865, Wellington became the capital city of New Zealand, replacing Auckland, where William Hobson had placed the capital in 1841 as its shown in the Capital of New Zealand map. The Parliament of New Zealand had first met in Wellington on 7 July 1862, on a temporary basis, but Wellington did not become the official capital city for three more years. As the national capital, Wellington is the location of the highest court of New Zealand, the Supreme Court. Wellington is the southernmost capital city in the world. Wellington is also the most remote capital city in the world, the farthest away from any other capital city.
