Difficult question. Loved Perth when I was there and always thought I could settle there if I couldnt make it back in NZ. I havent spent much time there though so dont really know of its problems. And its very remote.
Love Auckland's beaches and the far north, ease in getting to other parts of the country and overseas. But Auckland does have traffic problems and some crime problems (depending on where you live).
Weighing it up..I think easy access to beaches and flights out give Auckland a slightly better position.

I've only visited Auckland for a day and a half. It was very pretty, very green, seemed nice but that's not the same as living in a place. Only then can you get a proper idea of whether it suits you or not.

I live in Perth, enjoyed it, but have had enough of it, can't wait to leave. No regrets though, just needing something different and it's not my cup of tea afterall. I wouldn't choose Auckland either as I'm done with the isolation and overpriced cost of living. Beaches don't do it for me.

Mod Note:

City Data asks members to be specific in their questions.

Very vague queries like the OP make it very difficult for members to give specific information and also tend to result in flame wars.
