It's a nymph of a cicada - Hemiptera/Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadidae - see https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/127445437/theyll-be-out-and-theyll-be-loud-next-wave-of-cicadas-expected-to-emerge-late-january

Thank you!

Maybe more likely Chorus Cicada (Amphipsalta zelandica) - https://davesgarden.com/guides/bf/showimage/14289/
