OpenTopography is collaborating with Land Information New Zealand to make 3D point cloud lidar data in New Zealand available for download, processing, and visualization. LIdar-derived DEM and DSM raster products are available for download via the LINZ Data Service. LINZ recently published another nice tutorial on how to use OpenTopography tools to produce custom raster terrain products (i.e., DEMs, DTMs, and DSMs) from LINZ point cloud data.
