As the capital city of New Zealand, Wellington is located at the south western point of North Island, in-between Cook Strait and the Rimutaka Range. The most populated parts of Wellington consist of four cities: Wellington City, Porirua, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt.
Wellington has the great advantage of being compact in size, but still possessing all the features and luxuries of a large city. Its small scale means travelling around the city is significantly easier than the rigours usually involved in city commuting. Many residents, in fact, opt for walking or cycling.
Its small scale does not hinder the cultural value or the diversity and cosmopolitan appeal of the place. The city is still able to encompass a wide range of arts and entertainment, and eateries ranging from quaint cafes to fine dining experiences. Notably, Wellington is famed across New Zealand for its coffee specialities and boasts an array of cafés and roasteries to meet every possible taste. Alongside the appeal of the city, the area benefits from a striking natural backdrop.
The area is also of increasing appeal amongst expats due to the boom in the creative and technology industries and the associated recruitment drive as New Zealand looks to migration to bridge the current skills gap.
