Can you tell the difference between spoken English in Australian accent and spoken English in New Zealand accent?

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

New Zealand accent is a bit heavier, especially on short e and i sounds

No but I can tell the difference between Scottish and the others. I had an English teacher from Scotland for 2 years. It was awful.

Sometimes a Kiwi sounds a bit closer To British. Other times they are practically indistinguishable.
