The Location

Ranked 4th best place to visit in the world by Lonely Planet in 2011, Wellington is the political and cultural centre of New Zealand, offering the luxury of living in a small city with big city advantages, with a magnificent harbour framed by hills. The relatively young and affluent population is reflected in the excellent range of schools, the huge range of cultural events and more cafes and restaurants per head of population than New York (by the way, Wellingtonians love their coffee!).

The international airport makes connections to the other parts of the world and elsewhere within New Zealand very easy. Housing is affordable and of a high quality with a range of lifestyle options whether you want to live in a city apartment, beach house or country property and nearly every inhabitant lives within 3km of the coast. Beyond the city and its beautiful harbour you have a wild and rugged coastline, mountains, ski fields, wineries and historical towns all within easy reach making this a perfect lifestyle destination.
