Porirua City is our place and we think you’ll really enjoy living here.

We’ve got a great lifestyle with beaches, forests, and wetlands on our doorstep. Whatever you’re looking for in a home – from modern homes in Aotea, lifestyle blocks in Pāuatahanui, to beachfront properties in Titahi Bay, Plimmerton, and Pukerua Bay – we have it here in Porirua City. 

We have great schools, public transport linking us to Kapiti Coast and Wellington City, playgrounds, community centres, shops, and a proactive council. 

Porirua City is a truly special place. There is something for everyone. We work together as a community and cherish our ability to spend time with family and friends in our beautiful natural environment. 

We love living in Porirua City

We’re a friendly bunch and enjoy getting together as a community. We’re really close to Wellington and the Kapiti Coast but have our own unique culture. It really is another world here – it’s relaxed, easy to navigate, there are so many things to do, and parking is free (beat that!). 

A lot of us choose to live in Porirua City and work in Wellington or up the coast – it’s a very easy commute and you get to leave the rat race in the capital behind at the end of the day and head home to our relaxed environment. 

Come and check out why we love living in Porirua City.
