Living in Hamilton, New Zealand
Remember the Shires in the Lord of the Rings films? The location was Matamata, just 40 minutes by car from the city of Hamilton. This North Island city sits on the Waikato river in some of the greenest and most verdant landscape in New Zealand. Hamilton has left its agricultural past behind though, and is now the 3rd fastest growing urban area across the two islands. Its population is also predominantly young, with over 50% of residents under 30.
Schepens has been helping families to move to this beautiful city for decades now, but we don’t have any experience of living in Hamilton, New Zealand. That’s why we asked a number of our clients who are now happily settled there to help us out. These are some of their responses.
