Torbay, New Zealand

Torbay is a northern suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. It is located on the city's North Shore, and is governed by Auckland Council. The name Torbay comes from the area of the same name in the south east of Devon, England[citation needed], and from the Tor, a presque-isle at the north end of Waiake Beach that becomes an island at high tide.
