Very much like Sydney

Yes it is the closest city to Sydney.

Both cities have:
  • similar layout;
  • a harbour Bridge to the North Shore;
  • a very tall tower;
  • lots of boats;
  • great beaches;
  • mountains to the west;
  • sizable city to the south (Hamilton/Wollongong).

Except that Sydney is 4 times bigger and Auckland is built atop 50 volcanoes.

I think ultimately comparing Sydney to Auckland is relatively irrelevent. There are some visual similarities, but other than that they are entirely different.

I would say Auckland is more like a cross between Seattle and Brisbane.

I have to disagree because the topography is startingly similar and so the city layout with a prominent bridge to the north shore is quite an amazing similarity. Throw in a big tower each and even more so. I have lived in Sydney and New Zealand, (not Auckland). I took a cruise to the South Pacific Islands from Auckland once, and coming out of Auckland's harbour and along the North Shore looked very much like Sydney to me.

But sure, Auckland looks slightly Brisbanish when viewed from Westhaven Marina and perhaps looks like Seattle but cannot comment on that because I have never been there.

Interesting sig. Is Ulaanbataar really that nice? Have you been to any Canadian cities or are we just not good enough?

Aukland's nice btw.
