Why you should live in Wellington
Wellington is a little city with a big heart. Perched on the harbour’s edge and surrounded by nature, New Zealand’s compact capital is packed with arts, culture, cuisine, disruptive technology and wild ideas
“You can’t beat Wellington on a good day” is a saying you’ll come to familiarise yourself with if you ever end up here. At the very bottom of the world, at the bottom of New Zealand’s north island, you’ll find Wellington.
Often described as the most liveable city in the world, "the coolest little capital in the world" and culinary centre of New Zealand (as well as literal capital of the country), Wellington has it all.
Trains, roads, ferries and trails connect the region, making living in one area and commuting to another an easy choice.
If you like getting out in nature, the Wellington region has hundreds of hiking, biking, walking and horse-riding tracks for you to explore.
