Eithad Gold only have access to NZ lounges if the flight is ticketed and marketed by EY and you are flying on NZ metal under an 'EY' flight number.
If lounge access is a must, Air NZ allows paid entry (around $50). There is also the Manaia lounge which contracts to EK and QF and I believe they allow paid door entry as well.

Just an FYI, I believe Air NZ have stopped their pay for entry option recently.

The Christchurch Lounge have no idea
Back when I had a United Club membership trying to use it was impossible when traveling on a NZ flight. Some had not seen the card before and some said they saw an internal email the other day saying no united club card allowed. In the end they just refer to a book maybe about 100 pages thick which has all the details + pictures of each card. That being said I was allowed in everytime.
The answer is mostly likley no but I does not hurt to ask, They will most likley check the book through
