Read soc.culture.new-zealand, and nz.general if you can get it.  A weekly

"The New Zealander " is a new full colour weekly tabloid available in
Australia for A$2.95.  Like other publications we know of, the Dominion,
and the Evening Post are among the sources of its articles, although it can
presumably print articles verbatim.

New Zealand News UK is an Independent Weekly newspaper, covering NZ

also a version called 'Overseas' with lots of info about visa requirements,
etc. for Brits wishing to travel.  Try calling NZ News on 0171 930 6451.
