None that are set up specifically for tourists. You could probably get on a freight ship if you are really keen.

If you are trying to get a car across, I can virtually guarantee you that it would be much cheaper to simply get a new car in NZ.

If you are ona budget then you have a choice of Jetstar or Virgin Blue. Both offer pretty competitive fairs but Jetstar is slightly cheaper. However, Jetstar only flies to Christchurch as far as I know. Virgin flies to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. This will probably be your most cost effective way of getting to NZ from Australia.

Check out their websites for more information.

When we were checking our flights between Australia & New Zealand the LOW cost carriers were not that cheap to be honest - look at Air New Zealand and Quantas also - although we are flying at peak season between Dec 06 & Jan 07!
