This is an acrylic fridge magnet souvenir depicting Auckland in New Zealand. Auckland is in the North Island of New Zealand,and is the largest and most populated area in the country with around 1,397,300 people. Auckland has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world. The Economist's World's most livable cities index of 2011 ranked Auckland in 9th place. The central part of the city occupies a narrow strip of land between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the few cities in the world to have harbours on two separate major bodies of water. The Waitemata Harbour has popular swimming beaches at Mission Bay, Devonport, Takapuna, and the west coast has popular surf spots such as Piha and Muriwai. Many Auckland beaches are patrolled by surf lifesaving clubs, which are part of Surf Life Saving Northern Region.

The early morning calm during settled weather, before the sea breeze rises, is when many Aucklanders choose to walk and run in parks. Auckland occasionally suffers from air pollution due to fine particle emissions. There are also occasional breaches of guideline levels of carbon monoxide. While maritime winds normally disperse the pollution relatively quickly it can sometimes become visible as smog, especially on calm winter days. Precipitation is relatively abundant all year round, but peaks marginally in winter.
