Better to depart from Opua, rather than Auckland, to lessen the distance of coastal work up to Cape Reinga.

I suggest entering Australia at Lord Howe island - not only a great place to visit, but the local police sergeant can do quarantine, customs and immigration. You still need to go to a port of entry to get the final paperwork done, and I suggest Coffs Harbour as a friendly place to get that seen to. Remember to let the Australia authorities know your intended port and ETA more than 96 hours before arriving.
