Palmerston North, New Zealand

Palmerston North's central North Island location is conveniently close to west coast beaches, and within easy driving distance to the Hawke's Bay wine region, skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Ruapehu, and New Zealand's capital city, Wellington.

More than 80,000 people live in Palmerston North and a third of them are aged between 15 to 30 years. The Palmerston North community supports learning and enjoys an easy relationship with Massey's large student population.
