Living in Rotorua
Rotorua has become the lifestyle destination of choice for professionals, families and people that have a passion for life and the outdoors.
Rotorua has a long history of outstanding manaakitanga (hospitality) that has helped encourage a growing multi-cultural community with support networks and immigration advice to help people get settled. The city’s increasingly diverse economic base is also becoming a hub for innovation and creativity.
With stunning geographical features, including 18 natural lakes, hundreds of kilometres of mountain biking and walking trails and a growing arts scene, there is something here for everyone. Find out more about the Rotorua region.
Rotorua’s central location means you are never more than a couple of hours away from whatever you need. Short car trips can take you to the coast for a day at the beach or to the mountains for a day on the slopes.
Slightly further afield you can reach Auckland airport for your overseas getaway in just a couple of hours.
