There’s a reason Wellington often ranks highly as one of the most liveable cities in the world. It offers a relaxed, easy going lifestyle with short commutes, low levels of pollution, and people here take work-life balance very seriously. We have the great outdoors as our backyard, and we want you to see it.
Commuting around the capital is a breeze. When you can, we recommend walking. After all, Wellingtonians are the fittest residents of any city in the country.
You can explore the compact flat CBD easily on foot, bike or via public transport, and if you want to venture further afield there's plenty of transport options, including bus and train, to help you explore the Greater Wellington Region.
Wellington's talent pool of well educated, worldly and skilled people is the region's greatest asset, with Wellington workers being better educated than the average New Zealander. With work opportunities for the creatively inclined, to future culinary leaders, tech enthusiasts, film makers, game developers, beer barons, academics and social entrepreneurs, whatever your calling, you can find it in Wellington.
