I dunno but at work I've seen invoices for Allied Pickfords moving people from teh South Island to North Island and it's cost nearly 6k. So maybe it's 10k to Australia? Probably be doing it myself soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like everyone else.

My (kiwi) neighbours went to Brissy years ago, remember it being around $7k mark??
Na seriously, just a thought, have you asked the question on the OZ forum?
Might be someone there who has recently done NZ to Melbourne??

PS All the best.

We've got to bring our furniture from Darwin to NZ, so far quotes have been around the 16k mark. We're considering bringing down Aussie ourselves and having it shipped from there. Let me know what you find out, my husband has got some companies we contacted, I'll post them on here later.
