Moving to Wellington New Zealand

Nestled at the bottom of the North Island in New Zealand, Wellington has a relaxed, easy-going lifestyle where there’s a real emphasis on work-life balance. It has all the luxuries of a big city in a compact space; surrounded by dramatic bush-clad hills and homes battling the terrain on steep And then there’s the majestic deepwater harbour. All these elements combine to create a truly excellent combination for a superb place to live.

If you’re thinking of moving to Wellington New Zealand, Schepens can offer tailored international removals to towns and cities across the North and South Island of New Zealand. We asked some of the many expats we’ve moved to this beautiful part of the world what it’s like to live there.

Overwhelming Friendliness

You’ll be surprised by how warming and friendly people are in Wellington. It’s just in their nature. Expect people to show a real interest in how your day is going and have a quick chat about topical events. Newly arrived expats really appreciate this refreshing change and welcome it with open arms. Wellington’s a great place to call home – and the locals won’t miss an opportunity to let you know!

Majestic Scenery

Almost everywhere you look in Wellington could be turned into a postcard, and that’s not an exaggeration. Wellington has it all. From snow-capped mountains, colourful flowerbeds, to panoramic views of clear waterways with truly stunning nature walks. On top of that, Wellington is the beating heart of New Zealand’s film industry, where Hobbits and Vampires come to life! Located in the middle of Middle Earth, Wellington is a fantastic base to explore the rest of the beautiful country.

Spoilt For Culinary Choice

Wellington has some of New Zealand’s top restaurants, bars and cafes, which have won awards for their incredible food, service and atmosphere.

Here are a few of the most recent winners:

Atlas Restaurant: Having just opened in September 2019 on the Wellington waterfront, this upmarket eating establishment has already been included in Cuisine’s top 100 New Zealand restaurants. Each day, Atlas build a menu reflecting seasonal sensitivity and the best produce on offer.

Great India: Specialising in authentic North Indian cuisine using locally-sourced ingredients and fresh spices to create flavoursome dishes.

Bellamys by Logan Brown: A premium and quintessentially New Zealand dining experience, this is your opportunity to dine at the Beehive, where you might spot some Kiwi politicians if you’re lucky.

Wellington Weather

Although Wellington has a reputation for being very windy, the city has all kinds of weather conditions. Temperatures average around 15-20 degrees Celsius in the peak of summer and 0-10 degrees Celsius in the middle of winter. During the summer months, temperatures in Wellington make for a very pleasant climate, which is not too hot – but warm enough to enjoy the beaches and parks. Expats say the weather can often change quickly in the city, so always be prepared to pack a jacket even on a sunny day.
