By performing your internship in Wellington, you will benefit above all from an exceptional geographical framework and the neighbouring nature which is absolutely splendid.
Wellington is the capital and has the second biggest population of New Zealand. Ideally located between the beaches of the Kapiti Coast and several mountain ranges like the Rimutaka or Wairarapa mountains, you can enjoy great outdoor activities such as walking/hiking, tramping, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing and diving.
However, the city has much more than its natural environment to offer, with very rich cultural and sports programs. As an intern in Wellington, you will make the most of the nightlife by going out to bars, theatres, cinemas, shows, music festivals, students parties or All Blacks matches. The city is known for fine restaurants and its cafe culture – it has more cafes per head than New York!
