Howdy Brent and welcome to this forum and to hobby cheese making.

I've seen a couple Kiwi's around but no regulars, Tea and Bundy are here quite a bit and the closest to you as in Queensland.

That's good! Spare time around the holiday season, pick up a new hobby, except several of the new joiners have been making cheese for quiet a while. Welcome all.

Welcome Brent
I too am a newbie to this hobby.  A lot to learn and there's a lot of great information on this site.  Quite a bit of experienced cheese makers.  Good luck.

Ricotta can also be made from the leftover whey from cheese making too you know?  That why you get two cheeses for the price of one.

BTW I like you avatar.  Nice pic.
