I think the 'first electronic computer in New Zealand'
( http://www.ibm.com/ibm/nz/ ) still exists in NZ.  I am pretty sure
that this was operating at Motat ( http://www.motat.org.nz ) in the '70s
but was subsequently reclaimed by IBM.  I might be totally wrong on this
- it's on my list of things to check up on next time I'm in NZ.
