If you’re departing from as far north as Auckland, your flight time is likely to be on the shorter end of the spectrum, whereas those flying out of Queenstown or Dunedin are likely to have flights that are closer to the 30 hour mark, thanks to their geographical location, which increases the likelihood of stopovers.
