Moving to NZ

"We’re completed hooked on living in South Taranaki – it’s not just the awesome scenery, the friendly locals and great culture – it’s the whole lifestyle.  We’ve said good bye to long distance commuting, have more time to spend with friends and family, enjoy chances aplenty to revel in the great outdoors, festivals, sporting events and culture!"

Of course we’re biased – but comments such as this from recent migrants support our passion and belief – that South Taranaki is very definitely a place like no other. Click here to see what other recent migrants to South Taranaki have to say.
