Hi. I'm stuck in NZ. Terminated our home lease in Wellington, freighted the furniture back to WA, sold the car, then, 2 days before our flight, all flights cancelled!  Tried to get on red flights twice - no luck.  Seats sold out in seconds.  How does this happen?  How is it fair?  Wrote to AirNZ about it.  No reply. DFAT cant or wont help. Wrote to many politicians - sympathy but no action. No idea when we can get back to WA. Now living in Waikanae on the charity of our friends. Will consider flights to most states in Australia.

Curious to know how many other Aussies are in NZ.

Or if anyone has info related to potential up-coming flights from NZ to Australia.

It will be 2 years at the end of this month, since I've seen my husband. 

I appreciate that the government trying to protect its citizens from the spread of COVID but I would appreciate also if they try to do something for the stranded families and individuals who are suffering everyday in every aspect, by the way they are also humans and should have human rights and care !!!! Unfortunately Australian government didn’t show any kind of care for its stranded citizens. Therefore it is really shame on who did a such mess in people’s life and scratch the beautiful identity of being Australian. !!!

Thank you for this compilation of available information. 

As you note, lots of may be's and might's
