The Polish Community in Wellington, New Zealand, is a vibrant, social and culturally active community, that aims to share its rich Polish culture with the wider community and to pass on our culture to future generations. Our website provides you with an opportunity to learn something about our community as well as being a gateway to becoming involved in the Polish Community, either through The Polish Association in New Zealand, and/or other groups in the community.
