Can you tell the difference between spoken English in Australian accent and spoken English in New Zealand accent?
Ha! No. They make this joke a lot in Flight of the Concord's.
I can't even tell the difference between Australian and British accents sometimes. I usually don't spend much time listening to people from across the pond

Sometimes a Kiwi sounds a bit closer To British. Other times they are practically indistinguishable.
"Yes," he lied confidently.
