Ten reasons to move to Buller

1              It’s simply better in Buller.

2              Work – with so much construction and development going on we need workers.

3              The pace is relaxed – you won’t find big city hustle and bustle here we keep it chilled at a relaxed pace.

4              Housing – you can still buy a comfortable home for $250,000. And there’s loads of land if you’d rather build.

5              Getting around – we don’t know what traffic jams are, we don’t even have traffic lights or parking wardens.

6              The people – it’s all about community so we’re pretty proud about how good we are at watching out for each other.

7              Untamed wilderness – the great outdoors is at your doorstep. Fishing, rowing, kayaking, surfing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, walking – all just minutes away from wherever you are.

8              Support for start-up businesses – Development West Coast is ready and waiting to deliver support to start-up businesses.

9              Kid friendly – just like it used to be, kids are free to ride, roam, and explore, and loads of clubs and activities for them to get involved with.

10           Pet friendly – loads of beaches and parks to walk your fur baby or ride your horse on the beach.
