The capital is no ordinary place to live and work

“People want to talk projects more than possessions.”

“Life is really easy here.”

“People are interested in you as a person.”


Smart people, cool business

We have the highest concentration of web-based and digital technology companies in New Zealand. We're home to a long list of creative and innovative businesses such as Weta Workshop and Weta DigitalXero, and Pik Pok.


High-tech success zone

Wellington thrives on bringing innovation to life and our booming digital technology industry has removed all barriers to local creativity. With a culture that embraces outside-the-box thinking, Wellington is a magnet for talented tech professionals.


Great quality of life

Wellington came out on top across most categories in the The Nielsen Quality of Life Survey. Pair that with our world-class healthcare and education providers in Wellington, it's easy to see why people love living here.


The great outdoors

Just minutes from downtown Wellington you’ll find a green belt threaded with walking and biking tracks, a sparkling harbour, and a waterfront precinct perfect for a stroll or lunch on the grass.


Culinary capital

Our coffee and craft beer producers are internationally recognised. We revel in our year round fresh food markets and culinary festivals that keep our bellies full all year long. 


Getting it done together

We’re a small city punching above our weight globally, and we celebrate each other’s success.  We encourage collaboration and partnership and recognise our economy is an ecosystem where we thrive together.
