Eventually we found what we were looking for. Unfortunately it wasn't in New Zealand but in Australia.
Hi Francis - where in Australia are you? Australia is a big place when compared with NZ, and there's a huge difference between (say) Sydney or Perth, and living in a city or a rural area outside. Where you live can make a huge difference to your experience.
