Having traveled extensively throughout Australia and NZ and IMHO I would hit Melbourne, Sydney and Cairns (for the reef).

I love the contrast of both Sydney and Melbourne. But, while I love the outdoors - I really love checking out Cities. Snorkling/diving the reef was probably the coolest thing I ever did. I'll never forget the first time I popped under the water to snorkel at the reef. I was literally scared as the it so teeming with fish, bright colors and reef.

Auckland has never really done much for me. But, of course, there are some who find the best place on the earth.

You really almost can't go wrong. Check out a few guidebooks for both countries and puruse the more specfic parts of this site. Fodors.com always has an active discussion for those areas

best of luck
