On separate tickets this is risky, even with no checked baggage. You could easily have 20 minute walk between arrival and departure gates, then add time for security, to check-in (if needed), and anything more than a short delay on the first flight will lead to missing the second flight.

Hey,
We are olanning following flights
PER-SYD 23:55-6:10
SYD-AKL 9:55-15:00
AKL-PPT 16:15 ->

Question is if 1h 15min is long enough connection in AKL? Ali flights are on same ticket but NeXT flight to PPT if missed would leave next day.

We were thinking also
PER-MEL 23:55-5:20
MEL-AKL 7:45->

But with MEL is 2h25min transfer enough time to visit in QF F lounge?

AKL PPT is the QF codeshare TN operated
IF QF are selling as 1 ticket they consider it OK. QF's risk and not yours.
At AKL you would remain international airside. Just a security check.
At SYD you would have to do the T3 T1 bus shuffle.

For option 2 MEL domestic & international are a 5 minute walk
You would get time for breakfast in the QF F lounge.
Option 2 would be my preference. Avoiding SYD T3 T1 shuffle is worth spending a little extra for. And more time for the AKL transit

Air NZ have a non stop PER AKL flights and AKL PPT flights

Agree with Mwenenzi, the MEL transit is the preferred option. So much easier than connecting in SYD. You will lose at least 20 minutes in SYD just going between terminals, so the lounge time isn't as big a difference as it appears. And yes you should have time to get to the F lounge in MEL.

Well, QF might be responsible for rebooking, but I wouldn't say the passenger has no risk. There is a cost to missing your flight especially when there is only 1 per day.
