Then you didn't check very hard. Look again. Both Australia and New Zealand have legislation in place which names New Zealand's components as states of Australia. The legislation has never been invoked, but it's there.

You don't complain if an American conference goes to Hawaii or Alaska, do you? Yet they're both much more remote from the mainland USA than Kiwiland is from mainland Australia.

That is completely different! I do not need a passport to get to those states. Those are actual states, whereas NZ is not. Australians still need a passport.
