Australia's key tourism body wants to encourage more New Zealand visitors by making it cheaper and quicker to cross the Tasman.
Its Tourism and Transport Forum has put forward a range of reforms to the Australian government, including simplifying formalities at the border.
The forum suggests cutting the travel time from New Zealand to Australia by streamlining check-in, customs and quarantine procedures.
It also proposes opening more regional airports to trans-Tasman flights.
The forum's acting chief executive, Trent Zimmerman, says the aim is to make the trip to Australia feel more like a domestic service.
