EDITED TO ADD:
While I anticipated some point increases when Australasia was added to the program, I did not anticipate them to increase to this absurd level. I think they're out of their tree. It's a shame because I am planning to be in Australia in August and was going to redeem. But not for 40-75K points/night.
I never booked anything in New Zealand as a member of the Australasian program, but the highest level for New Zealand redemptions was 34,000 points. That is a huge change.

EDIT: Having a look from Australia, it seems that anything in the Clation Collection is 75,000. Everything else seems much the same as it did.
