No the entities in NZ have no relation to Australian entitles in respect of bankruptcy.

HOWEVER, it is 2016, they can do a search on you in Australia and you may have some difficulty getting a loan there perhaps, but it is a matter for the financial institutions there.

I wish to help you in this situation.
