Wellington Expat Events

Enjoy your Wellington Expat Experience

New Zealand's "Windy City" opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the quaint Wellington Cable Car, which runs from the harbour to the Botanic Garden,, the traditional celebration of New Zealand’s Waitangi Day, to savoring a dish of pavlova. The InterNations network is a place made for the Wellington expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in New Zealand. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Wellington, from ʺCan I ship my own car to NZ without objections from the local customs authorities?ʺ to ʺWhat are the biggest job search engines for working in new Zealand?ʺ
