I always wonder at comments like this. Makes it seem like a great, unfathomable mystery when, you can google the answer in approximately 4 seconds.

Yay, easy for a kiwiquizzer who has been to all those places. As a NZer who has finally mastered all those States of the USA quizzes, any Americans who have mastered this quiz? :-)

Shouldn't Lower Hutt be included? According to wikipedia, it is the 6th largest city after Tauranga.

I am very grateful to be randomly given this quiz (using the randomise button) seeing that I am a resident of none other than... Hamilton! (not a very great feat, my hometown gets picked on a lot, and there is no blame for that.)
