Auckland City


Tāmaki Makaurau

Christchurch is well-known as the country’s “traditional English city,” which isn’t that strange once you consider the fact that it took its name from an Oxford University college.

Dunedin building



With spectacular landscapes, untouched natural wonders, rare wildlife, rich history, and culture all on Dunedin’s doorstep, it’s no wonder many newcomers choose to settle in Dunedin.

Tauranga New Zealand



Nestled on the banks of the Waikato River, with tranquil gardens, flowing rivers and breath-taking bush walks it one of the fastest growing urban areas in the country

Tauranga New Zealand



One of the country’s fastest growing cities and the most populous in the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga is undoubtedly one of New Zealand’s top destinations. Awesome weather, pristine beaches and a strong job market are the first things that should pop into your mind when you think of Tauranga.

Nelson New Zealand



If you’re considering moving to New Zealand, Nelson might just be the perfect destination for you. This charming city on the South Island offers a relaxed lifestyle, stunning natural beauty, and a strong community spirit.




If you’re considering a move to New Zealand, one of the best options available to you is the South Island, particularly the beautiful resort town of Queenstown (Tāhuna).

Wellington Nightlife


Te Whanganui-a-Tara
