Now is the time to Love Local

A message from WellingtonNZ to our local community

Our local businesses need your support now more than ever.

Many of our incredible local businesses don’t have the option to work from home. Food and retail businesses are still open. Many of them deliver and have online stores.

Over the coming weeks and months, the team at WellingtonNZ will be encouraging you to #LoveLocal and support businesses right across our beautiful region.

Support your neighbourhood café, top up your shopping at your local dairy, get meals delivered from your favourite restaurant, buy the products you need from local retailers, buy music from local musicians on Bandcamp, buy books by local authors. And when the situation allows, have a staycation somewhere in the region.

The best thing about Wellington has always been its people. We’re caring, we’re welcoming and inclusive, we support one another. Let’s show how we can come together as a community, even when we’re unable to do that physically.  

Kia kaha,

The team at WellingtonNZ
