Welcoming, Friendly and Fun
Wellington is famous for its warm welcome to people from all over the world – 40 national Embassies and High Commissions are resident here. We are proud of our tolerant, safe society – and of our fabulous natural environment.
Centred on a beautiful natural harbour, Wellington is surrounded by kilometres of beach, native forests and hills and mountains. Wellingtonians love to enjoy the natural environment - swimming, surfing, sailing, fishing, diving, mountain biking, hiking … and taking part in any sport you’d like to try – all are on offer and many are free of charge.
WelTec – in the Heart of Wellington
Whether you study at one of WelTec’s centre city campuses, or in the charming historical suburb of Petone, you will have the best of both worlds; living in the heart of a vibrant, interesting city and being able to escape to the countryside, harbour and hills to relax, refresh or play whenever you wish. Wellington offers every visitor experiences to remember forever and the perfect environment in which to study, work, live and play.
