Looks more like hail you would see from the Midwest USA rather than NZ!
Good stuff!

Interesting hailstones.
You can tell that they were going up and down in the cloud, possibly jostling to the side as well, to form those clusters showing what sort of strong updrafts that were occuring during the thunderstorm.
