I'm not sure we actually have any over here. The Brittons do organised adv rides & I do believe there is a place in queenstown that rents trail bikes but apart from that I'm not aware of any one else.

Our riding here isn't as remote as what you have in Aussie, ie never more than a hundred kms away from civilisation.
You could time it to coincide with the Dusty Butt which is a 2 day 1000K ride.
