The microUSB on my 2010-era HTC Desire has finally completely worn out.
The actual part looks like it is a ZX62M-B-5P

It costs $1.42 for 1, but the shipping is $39! surprised

Is there likely to be any place I could source one of these locally (I'm in Auckland)?

They are $1.40 plus GST with a minimum order of 10 from Element 14.  If you can find someone doing an order they could add these on to their order for you.

I assume you've tried ebay, they are usually a good source of common replacement parts.

Had a sudden idea to check trademe for old HTC Desire phones, and, surprise, someone was selling a broken HTC Desire (broken in a different way) for $5, with the auctioning finishing that evening.

I put in a bid, but was distracted later, and someone else got it (for $6.50) :-(

We do periodic purchasing from digikey, so might put it in the mix there, unless someone has a broken HTC Desire out there they aren't using....

You could try RS Components. They currently have it in stock for $2 with 5 day delivery, minimum order 5. You could give them a call and see if they have any available for pickup?
