[edit] Description

Auckland (Tāmaki-makau-rau (Māori)) is the largest city in New Zealand with a population of 1.4 million [1] (as at June 2009). The population density is low thus Auckland suffers from extreme suburban sprawl resulting in nearly every resident needing to own a vehicle to get anywhere in a respectable amount of time. Auckland straddles the Auckland Volcanic Field which contains around 50 volcanoes. It also lies on a skinny isthmus less than two kilometres wide at its narrowest point, and is surrounded by two harbours and associated inlets. Of the graticule, what isn't comprised of water or suburbia, is made up of regional parks, beaches and farmland, providing many opportunities for remote and beautiful geohash hunting adventures.

For the purpose of the Reverse regional achievement, the Auckland graticule comprises the following districts:
Rodney, North Shore City, Waitakere City, Auckland City, Manukau City (and Northland).
The Papakura and Franklin Districts fall under the Manukau City graticule.
