Waimea College is located in Richmond. A town with a population of around 10,000 people, Richmond is situated 12 kilometres southwest of Nelson. The town is the hub for the fruit-growing, wine-making and forestry industries on the surrounding Waimea Plains.
Richmond is in the Nelson/Tasman region at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. Our region is a vibrant and sought-after location with the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand - a glorious 2,500 a year.
The Nelson/Tasman region is home to some of the most stunning natural beauty in the world, and because of its awesome outdoor opportunities, gourmet food, world-class wines and sophisticated arts, many people choose to live in the region due to its fantastic lifestyle.
All this with towns that are small, easy to get around, safe and extremely friendly. What more could you want!
