Hmmm, maybe you mean the east of Auatralia? That's the closest to NZ, anyway.
Depending on how long you were planning on, I'd recommend doing NZ at the end of summer, and then Australia in our Autumn (which is pretty much from now onwards). NZ would be awesome in the summer, and it's finally starting to cool down a bit here now.
