Auckland is New Zealand's largest city, with around 1.4 million people calling it home. It is situated primarily adjacent to the North Island's fjord-like Hauraki Gulf coastline, giving access to shipping from the north or east, with further access to the southern suburbs via the west coast's Manukau Harbour. Auckland is a thriving and modern city with fine weather, great scenery, friendly people and many offshore islands to explore.

Nearest public coin laundry is Bubbles; up the hill open 6am - Midnight.
