Australia has by far the larger and stronger economy of the two countries and every year, many thousands of New Zealanders come here to take advantage of the greater work opportunities in Australia (we have unrestricted movement of citizens between the two countries) but New Zealand is a lovely place and the cost of living is somewhat lower there.
You'll probably be able to come to Australia and New Zealand on separate 12 month working holiday visas, but you won't be able to stay any longer than that in either country as both have strict immigration regulations that require you to have skills that are in demand in that country for you to have any chance of being able to stay on a longer term basis. You can't just move there because you think it would be a good idea and want to get out of your own country.

There are pretty strict criteria for living and working in both countries, so don't think you can just move to them. Look at the immigration requirements before doing anything.
Living in both countries, well unless you like a lot of travel that probably not going to happen.
Best wages are in Australia and more job oppurtunities, but New Zealand has more relaxed lifestyle and people (In NZ we consider Australians to be quite arrogant, not bad when you want things done but it can wear thin at times).
