Kiwi Accents

Many think that there is only one, perhaps two types of Kiwi accent. This is a fallacy, there are many regional variation in both accents and dialects. As the country becomes more influenced by migration and international speech patterns further variations are bound to occur: For samples of recordings see Dialects and Accents of New Zealand

Here are some direct links to the 17 samples on that site:
Male, born 1977, restaurant manager, raised Christchurch
Female, European, born 1954
female, born 1956, Lower Hutt, academic assistant
