Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city and the country’s second most populous with around 405,000 residents. The city is neatly compact with the daily commute to work taking around 25 minutes and most residents living a short stroll from a public transport route.
Wellington is blessed with a great transport network, which includes numerous train and bus lines which reach as far as the Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa. Ferries also connect the city to the South Island.
The cost of living is slightly cheaper than its fellow NZ city of Auckland, with house prices being below the national average. Marketed as the “coolest little capital”, Wellington has a creative and diverse cultural scene with passionate sporting traditions.
The city also benefits from an internationally recognised education system which benefits from state-funding. With a variety of both private and public schools, Wellington is a popular destination for ambitious and creative students from around the world.
