Sorry but you are confusing working in Oz and visiting. As a tourist, Kiwi's have a visa waiver with Australia. Talking about work visa's is an entirely different thing.
It doesn't matter whether the intention of the person with a NZ passport is to visit or work/live, at point of entry they are issued with an SCV. The SCV covers New Zealanders who are visitors (e.g. tourists) and those intending on living in Australia. It's an automatic thing for most NZ passport holders.
The SCV is largely a workaround to satisfy the 1973 Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement after changes in 1994 to the Migration Act 1958 which meant that all non-Australian citizens had to hold a visa to be legally in Australia. Yes, Kiwis only need to turn up with a valid NZ passport to enter Australia (except those with either behaviour or health "concerns") - however an SCV is granted upon entry no matter the reason for being in Australia.
This has taken the thread well off-topic now, so let's leave it here.
Well dude your the one that has been rather pedantic and taken it off topic. There is a visa waiver between Australia and NZ what they are given after that is beside the point. Your right though, lets leave it here.
