April - May is always an ideal time to travel to either of these countries, as it's fall down under, so the weather is very mild and comfortable for traveling. Temperatures in Sydney, AU average mid 60's right now, and in Auckland, NZ, about the same.
Also, airfares are currently at the lowest they've been in quite a while. Roundtrip fares from Los Angeles to Sydney or Auckland right now are just $518 USD! If you're traveling to Australia, that fare includes a free stopover in New Zealand, or vice versa!
