Looks like a ply with a laminate on top. Usually kitchen manufacturers can source it. I would be interested to know a wellington source too, without going though a kitchen manufacturer, as I want to resurface a coffee table.

I'm using a couple of sheets of this for a small project. 2200x600x25mm
https://www.bunnings.co.nz/untreated-american-white-oak-veneer-plywood_p08902287

The veneer is pretty thin and the ply doesn't look too flash in parts where laminations join but the price is right. Good ply is hellishly expensive.

City Timber on thorndon quay have specialist ply woods.

 

if it is some kind of laminate for furniture you might be able to get some from a furniture manufacturer - ask a joinery shop near you.

It's called "HPL" plywood (high pressure laminate).

 

Has a coloured melamine surface layer bonded when it's made (melamine is the binder resin in "formica" etc).

We just had our kitchen made from the polaris HPL shown on that site - would do it again.
