An Australian PR will allow you to live and work in NZ, HOWEVER none of the time you spend in NZ will count towards any Australian requirements to either retain PR or move towards citizenship.

I believe you can, as you have an Australian PR visa. But please confirm that with NZ Immigration before doing anything more.

Default Saving my OZ PR while in NZ

Thanks folks....appreciate the heads up....

In continuation with my question and ur answers....

any idea if I would automatically qualify for NZ residency if I were to spend time in NZ while using my Aust. PR?

The idea here being that in case I loose Aust PR I can at least gain NZ PR which can allow me free access to OZ whenever I want including the right to work in OZ.

Just my idea of a safeguard if such a thing is possible/probable?

Going back to the original question. No Australians do not require a visa or work permit for NZ and neither do NZ'ers require a visa or work permit for Austalia.

Going back to the original reply... but this only applies if you have an NZ passport - NOT another country's passport with an NZ permanent residents visa

Do you need a visa or permit to work in
New Zealand?

You do not need a work visa or work permit to work in
New Zealand if one of the following applies to you.
• You are a New Zealand citizen.
• You hold a New Zealand residence permit or a returning
resident’s visa.
• You are an Australian citizen.
• You are exempt from the requirement to hold a permit to
be in New Zealand.
• You are intending to undertake work in New Zealand that is
not considered to be employment (see ‘What work is not
considered to be employment?’ on page 3).
If you are the holder of a current Australian permanent
residence visa or a current Australian resident return visa, you
do not need a visa to travel to New Zealand. You must apply for
a residence permit on arrival. You will do this by completing an
arrival card on the aircraft/ship on your way to New Zealand.

From - A guide to applying for a work visa/permit

My understanding of the above is that you don't need a visa, and you will be granted a permit when you enter NZ.

I was curious about this too. Here's what I found:

Working in New Zealand | Going to New Zealand | Australia | NZEmbassy.com

'Australian Citizens and permanent residents of good character who have entered New Zealand are permitted to work under the same conditions as New Zealanders.'
