Position location:


Well known as a cultural hub, Wellington is a popular destination for travellers and visiting professionals wanting a taste of the New Zealand lifestyle.  The compact size of the city centre is very walkable adding to the attractiveness of the many exotic eateries, craft beer options, and boutique shops.  Wellington weather is never boring and while the windy days are often the first thing mentioned, make no mistake that there are just as many pristine days as well.  Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the coast and forests that are on Wellington's doorstep as well as other popular destinations just a stone's throw further north or a ferry ride across the Cook Strait in the picturesque South Island.
