After searching, click the search tools button, then change the "The Web" dropdown to "Pages from New Zealand"

took me a while to find it as well and its annoying, not sure what they changed the design as there is nothing in the side bar as of yet.

Apparently you can use the firefox version for older behaviour:

I would seem using the method above and the search tools option then pages from New Zealand, yields different results.

I use "site:nz" in my query, which restricts the results to .nz domains.

Using site:nz will exclude sites such as metservice.com and will therefore restrict results further than the "classic" NZ search.

Yep, but that's often what I want. NZ targeted sites with a .com URL are stupid and don't deserve my attention.

Really annoying.

The design change is more minimal, but less practical by far.

They have been doing quite a few annoying changes lately. One is with image search. At one stage parts of image search additional option were missing, but I see they now have the at the top of the page instead of down the side.
