Skinks are insect eaters. I'm not familiar with lizard species of NZ, so you'd have to check locally their natural diet, but either way, you'd have to culture whatever bugs your skink will eat.
Palladium or similar would be a proper home for the skink.

Blue tongue lizards are native to Australia.
Awesome critter. You can feed them mealworms & crickets (dusted with calcium powder) Silkworms. They will eat mice, cat food, snails. They'll eat fruits and vegetables. They are omnivores.
An excellent site HERELots of tanks

I got to hold one once at a small pet store before they closed ^_^ Gorgeous creatures.
