The Auckland isthmus, also known as the Tāmaki isthmus, is a narrow stretch of land on the North Island of New Zealand in the Auckland Region, and the location of the central suburbs of the city of Auckland, including the CBD.

The Panmure Bridge connecting to eastern Auckland farmland and the fencibles settlement of Howick was opened in 1866, followed by the Māngere Bridge linking Auckland south in 1875, and the first Grafton Bridge in 1884, linking the central city to Grafton across the Grafton Gully.
