Default Spouse has Aussie passport - what do I need?

Hi, thanks for looking. The wife has an Australian passport (dual Brit nationality), and we want to head off to NZ so she can be a theatre nurse out there. I'm a bricky. Given that she's got an Aussie passport and bearing in mind the reciprocal agreement 'tween Oz and NZ, what do I need so that I can come too?
Ideally, it would be simplest to get in on a Family Permanent Resident - Partner ticket, but we're currently in the UK and intend to travel out together, so currently she's not a resident yet, making it technically a grey area in-between. So what do you people think?

Unusual question, which is why it's not been answered.

How long have you been married and are you aware of the new provisions in the
Australian Citizenship Act 2007 for spouses of Australian citizens?

It won't help you get to New Zealand in the immediate future, but you should also be aware that those admitted to Australia with permanent visas can normally live in New Zealand (at least for now).
