Auckland is New Zealand's largest city - home to about one third of the country's population. Take advantage of our mild weather, and experience real Kiwi lifestyles with your homestay family and friends.
This city is known for its two spectacular harbours, with many offshore islands to explore, easy access to beaches, sweeping views from Auckland's dormant and extinct volcanic peaks, the Waitakere Ranges rainforest, and a wide range of attractions, events, dining and entertainment. Auckland also boasts a unique Maori and Pacific cultural flavour, and a vibrant blend of people from many diverse backgrounds and parts of the world.
Waitakere College is very well located in a beautiful part of Auckland, with easy transport options to both rural and urban areas. The train station is a 5 minute walk from our high school, which is also close to a main motorway and many bus routes. Visit the many shopping areas and sports facilities nearby. Several of New Zealand's Universities, and other tertiary training courses, are based in Auckland, where you may choose to continue your learning beyond high school.
