This is the link to the requirements and NZ immi website: What is required?

You can apply for residency through partnership as long as you've lived together for at least 12 months. You do not need to be in NZ for this.

However I am not sure why you want to. NZ residency does not appear to confer any advantages for those wanting to live in Aus. It is only NZ citizens that have the right to live and work in Aus permanently.
You can only become a NZ citizen after being a NZ resident for 5 years and living in NZ for most of that time.
The fact you said that your husband doesn't want to move back to NZ means I'm assuming you don't want to live there either:unsure:
