The leaders of New Zealand and Australia have once again ended a weekend of meetings by describing their relations as like "family".
John Key and Julia Gillard celebrated 30 years of Closer Economic Relations in Queenstown this weekend.
They made a number of announcements aimed at making it easier to travel between our countries and do business.
But the big issue saw New Zealand allow 150 of Australia's unwanted refugees to move here every year.
Mr Key came away with little in return, with Ms Gillard refusing to budge on a request for New Zealanders living in Australia to be eligible for the same benefits as Australians living here.
