Moving to Whanganui

Thousands of individual stories make up our beautiful city, we welcome you to add yours.

A Welcoming Community

Diversity is an important part of Whanganui’s character and newcomers from around the world find a warm welcome here. We know finding your feet in a new home city is challenging but we have resources to help new residents make the transition to life in New Zealand’s Most Beautiful City. We’ve helped put together a booklet to help new residents settle in.
