It’s often dubbed as the coolest capital city in the world… what more do we have to say about beautiful little Wellington? Well, actually there’s a lot more we can say about it and, if you’re thinking of moving to New Zealand’s capital, we can give you plenty of reasons to do it. Let’s take a look at our top five reasons to move to Wellington and who to call if you’re interested in making the move.

1) Best city in the world?

Nope, it’s not just us who pose this question. Some organisations have rated Wellington the best city in the world when it comes to quality of life. It’s one of the cleanest and least polluted cities in the world. Not only this, but it’s also highly ranked for affordable power bills, cost of living and traffic – or lack of it!

2) Cultural paradise

Wellington is one of New Zealand’s cultural capitals. So many creative hubs are located within Wellington including the City Gallery, the national museum of Te Papa and the 100-year-old Opera House. These cultural establishments will be an integral part of becoming a sophisticated Wellingtonian.

3) Traffic? What’s that?

What’s one of the main reasons to move to Wellington? It’s just so easy to move around. No traffic jams, no bumper-to-bumper nightmares and no road rage. Great way to start and finish your day, right? Public transport is also far better in Wellington than basically anywhere else in New Zealand. Roughly 30 per cent of people in Wellington use public transport to get to work. You’ve got great options, including buses, trains, ferries and the cable car.

4) Cafes for days

Wellington isn’t just a cultural capital: it’s also a culinary capital! With bars and restaurants literally everywhere, it’s rumoured to have more eating establishments per capita than New York City! Whether this is true or not, it doesn’t really matter. You’ll always find somewhere cosy and hip to spend lunchtime, dinnertime or knockoffs in Wellington. As a cultural melting pot, there are plenty of cuisines to choose from.

5) Jobs galore

Worried about finding a job in your new city? You won’t have that problem if you move to Wellington. Tourism and technology are two industries that play a large role in the booming job market, so if that’s your niche, then Wellington could be your place to be.
