NZ has had half a dozen capitals, even Nelson was in line for the job. The cathedral here is a monster for the size of the town, and is built from stone from all around the country to 'represent' the entire land as befits a capital. Unfortunately the capital went elsewhere, and the cathedral only has the lower storey built, which explains its odd shape.

Auckland is to NZ what Sydney is to Australia.

Wellington is to NZ what Melbourne & Canberra are to Australia.
