Palmerston North is a key university city, noted for its agricultural faculty, in a rich farming district. It is widely known as a ‘student city’ and around 40% of its population either work at or attend the university and other educational institutions. The mix of farming industries nearby has made the city a particularly valuable hub for agriculturally-based education which in turn supports a significant number of science and research facilities in the region. Palmerston North is also close to the National Air Force base at Ohakea and to Linton Army Camp.
The lifestyle of Palmerston North City and the Manawatu Region is an easy-going one. The friendly community is made up of people from a variety of cultures, and residents enjoy the active city life of Palmerston North.

In addition to the excellent public parks and variety of activities offered within the Region, it is also well located to access ski fields, vineyards and the great outdoors. Palmerston North City is a cycle-safe city, making it an avid cyclist’s paradise.
