Is there a NZ site like ours?

Is there a site like Geocaching Australia set up for NZ? I have checked out the GC NZ page but it doesnt seem very active :( and am wondering if the Kiwis are chatting elsewhere.

That is where we hang out.
It's a bit more general than just Geocaching, but a large proportion of us are cachers.

And, now that i! have added the NZ stats to this page, you'll probably see a little more of your trans-Tasman cuzzibros here! :)

We found Kiwi cachers to be a friendly lot when we moved here a year ago, so do visit the above forum if you're passing through and you'll probably get offers to drop in for a cuppa from wherever you're headed..

Is there a New Zealand specific cache listing site or is it just OX, GCA and GC?

No there isn't.
GC covers pretty much all NZ needs.

Perhaps if the Geocanz (GCANZ) movement secretly lurking in the shadows ever rises to the fore we will see more NZ caches listed here :-"

I doubt it.
In the past the Kiwis have recognised the value that GCA brings to the antipodes in terms of statistics and other wonderful stuff, but they prefer not to split their cache listings from GC.

Pretty much like Ireland here.... very tight active community with a scarily similar forum, but wont touch open caching for quids.

Just to clarify... opencaching.ORG not opencaching.com... there are Zero .com caches here and only a few .org

Just tro clarify the clarification.
www.opencaching.com is owned and operated by Garmin.
www.opencaching.us is owned and operated under the OpenCaching Network in the USA.
Then you have www.opencaching.org.au www.opencaching.org.uk www.opencaching.pl www.opencaching.sp etc, etc, etc all as part of the the OpenCaching Netwoork.

I'm very keen not to have to split my effort across any more listings sites than necessary :roll: , which is why I have ignored the only opencaching.com cache I know about in the ACT.

GCA meets my 'open' philosophy caching needs quite nicely, and GC does the rest...
