29 May 2011:

View south from the tower. Auckland is New Zealand's largest city, home to a third of the 4.3 million people in the country. It is situated along a narrow isthmus of land between the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea. Hauraki, north of Auckland, is the Pacific, while Manukau Harbour, to the south (visible in this photo), is part of the Tasman.
