Are these parcels literally A4, i.e. 297x210xstuff-all, or are they thicker than A4? 2kg is very heavy for a document envelope, which is probably why the cost. I've sent heaps of A4-sized document packs between Aus and NZ and it's usually about $15 for the standard 3 - 10 day delivery, but these would all be under 500g parcels.

I was thinking of a satchel size like a standard courier pack could be a 2 inches thick

Is it a one off single package, recurring single packages, or a bulk lot of packages?  One off or recurring singles, I imagine that standard postal service is about the cheapest you'll manage.

If it's a bulk lot (as in several hundred pieces), you might contact NZ Post (yes even though you are in Australia), there are "Direct Entry International" options.
