Australian premier visits New Zealand

On the 30th anniversary of a free trade agreement between Australia and New Zealand, Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard travels to Queenstown to meet with her New Zealand counterpart John Key.

The two leaders will discuss the trading relationships between their countries, cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region and defence issues including cyber security.

In recognition of the shared military history of the two countries in the world wars, the leaders will lay a wreath at the Queenstown Anzac War Memorial Gate. The electoral prospects for Gillard's Labour government do not look good as she is far behind the opposition leader Tony Abbott in recent opinion polls.
