Moving to Wellington? Here’s What You Need to Know 

We’ve made a list of some of the most common questions and their answers that we find our residents ask when making the move to Wellington for medium to long-term renting:

  • Where can I rent a fully furnished apartment?

Finding the right property is the easy part. We have many wonderful high quality fully furnished properties available for rent. Most are within the CBD, with a few family sized homes in nearby suburbs.

  • What transport is available while I’m staying in Wellington?

There are 5 main options for transport in Wellington, which are public transport, ride sharing, taxis, rental cars and short term car hire using services such as Cityhop.

  • What is there to do in the weekends?

Whether you stay in town or venture out to the suburbs there is plenty to keep you occupied. You could head out to the beaches at Eastbourne or Oriental Parade, take a tour around the local Lord of the Rings filming locations, catch a movie or a show at the theatre, or have afternoon tea in the Botanic Gardens.

  • Where is the best shopping in the Capital?

Both the CBD and outer suburbs such as Newtown, Petone, Kapiti and Lower Hutt are great places to pick up some gorgeous new clothes or locally made souvenirs to send home.

  • Where are the best places to eat and drink?

Get ready to enjoy a taste explosion with the many award-winning bars and restaurants within the CBD. Courtney Place is always popular, as is Cuba Mall, and if craft beers are your thing, you’re in luck!
