Wellington has a windy, mild, and generally temperate climate. The city has been nicknamed 'Windy Wellington' for a good reason. Given the city's location on the Cook Strait, it is in the perfect location to produce a wind-tunnel effect (and some of the windiest conditions in New Zealand). While the temperature might be mild, the wind can make the temperature feel much colder.
Summers have an average temperature of between 19-21 degrees Celsius, and rarely gets above 25 degrees Celsius. February is the warmest month.
Winters are mild and wet, with an average temperature between 6-12°C. Frosts are quite common in the hills and Hutt Valley during winter, although snow is rare — and July is the coldest month. It is quite wet, even in its driest month, with an average rainfall of 1,249 mm per year.
Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, and the seat of New Zealand's government. The region is home to 11.5% of the country's employment figures. There is an opportunity to progress your career, particularly in ICT, engineering, business and finance, health, and construction sectors.
It is more expensive to live in Wellington (and New Zealand in general) than in Australia. The housing market is competitive, so it is best to come prepared when inspecting rental properties.
