NZ versus Australia

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We had a story yesterday about a New Zealander living in Sydney who's caused quite a stir online after posting a video listing reasons why Australia is better than NZ. It prompted a lot of debate so we'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the differences between the countries. Do you think one is better than the other and, if so, why? Please remember your comment could be included in an article unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email mikaela.wilkes@stuff.co.nz or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.
