The Diocese of Auckland is one of the thirteen dioceses and hui amorangi of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. The Diocese covers the area stretching from North Cape down to the Waikato River, across the Hauraki Plains and including the Coromandel Peninsula.
The Diocese of New Zealand was established in 1841, and originally covered the entire country. In 1854, it was limited (as the Diocese of Auckland) to the Auckland region only.
