Bump. I would like to knoe this as well. I was under the impression NZ is cheaper to live in, but I don't know a lot about the place.
The fact that there is 650,000 New Zealand Citizens ( about 10% of the Population of New Zealand) living in Australia must indicate something!

My family lived in NZ for four years before Australia. I was very young, but yes, according to my parents the cost of living is higher.

I'm moving back to Aus with my Kiwi citizen wife but chose Melbourne after crunching the numbers, despite having to pay for private healthcare in Aus (for me, a Canadian citizen).

Aussies always complain about prices but don't realize they're paid way more than other places. Vancouver is more expensive than Aus too - lowest wages and highest cost of living in US/Canada.

There are so many variables. Access to affordable housing is difficult in some of the big cities eg Sydney and Melbourne. The rents and house prices there are prohibitively expensive.
