The Cloud & Auckland waterfront 2
The Cloud is a multi-purpose event venue located on Queen's Wharf on the Auckland waterfront. It was built as one of the centrepieces of the hospitality and 'party zone' facilities for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, hosting up to 6,000 people.
Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have harbours on two separate major bodies of water. The central part of the urban area occupies a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean. The Auckland metropolitan area is the largest and most populous urban area in New Zealand with around 1.4 million residents - 31 percent of the country's population.
