Dear Sri Sridhar Vasudevan:

Yes, there is to some extent at Wellington.
There may be some at Auckland as well.

My niece's husband , Sri T.N.Balaji
at Wellington has been copied on this note.

He can help you with details.
My sister is there now and she completed 
a performance of "NaukA Charithram " 
of Saint ThyagarAjA at the local Temple
in a dance format with partcipation by
the local BhakthAs.NaukA Charithram 
deals with KrishNa Leelai (Gopi Garva 
Bhangam) , a favorite of Sri Bala MuraLi KrishNA.

There are a lot of Ceylon Tamils there as well
and hence there are religious activities beyond
the ones of strictly VaishNavite  nature . 

In summary , There is a good but small group
of VaishNavites  at Wellington , NZ.

Please get in touch with Sri T.N.Balaji
and family for additional details .

Best wishes,
