cath - We had quite a discussion on this recently. Ben came up with a source on Ebay.

Here's the discussion: http://cheeseforum.org/forum/index.php/topic,2437.0.html

Here's the source:

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine, cheese...it's all good.

Try here?  http://www.clarkproducts.co.nz/IndustrialChemicals.php

I looked at the homebrew shops, which usually have CaCl2, and none of them seem to have it in NZ.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

Hi Cath,

Maybe Australian shops www.greenlivingaustralia.com.au or www.cheeselinks.com.au can send it to you.

Another Kiwi here.

Just getting interested in cheese making, after getting frustrated at the lack of decent paneer in this city ::). I had a good source in Chch but no luck so far up north...

But, I figure in for an inch, in for a mile, I might as well do some learning, and this looks like an excellent place to do it!

Cheers for an awesome repository of knowledge.
