Insider tips for life in NZ's capital city, Wellington

In May 2017, 100 tech candidates from around the world came to interview with Wellington's finest employers on LookSee Wellington Week.  As Official Resettlement Partner, Mobile Relocation was proud to share, among other things, an insight into local life for each day our visitors were in town.

Tip#1 - 'There's nowhere like Welly on a good day'. Take the chance to relish the seaside vibe, just 10 minutes drive from the CBD, at the Chocolate Fish Café .

Tip#2 - ‘Wellingtonians love their movies’. Lighthouse Cuba St. Architecturally designed, locally owned. Showing top independent films, and some brilliant blockbusters. There’s craft beer, coffee, ice-cream. What more could you ask for?

Tip#3 - ‘A city that lives art and culture.’ Poetry and sculpture etched into the waterfront, literally. Take this walk with your eyes open!

Tip#4 – ‘Get involved.’ Like to walk/run/mountain bike/birdwatch/volunteer for conservation projects? Just 16 minutes drive from the CBD is Makara Peak. A community of like-minded people waiting for you join in.
