Australia extended their one-day international winning streak to 23 matches with a 71-run win over New Zealand to clinch the three-match series with a game to spare.
Set 272 for victory, New Zealand were bowled out for 200, left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen taking 3-29.
Amelia Kerr top-scored for the hosts with 47 in Tauranga but they lost 7-80 after Kerr fell to Jonassen.
Australia had posted 271-7 from their 50 overs, built on Rachael Haynes’ 87.
It is an 18th consecutive bilateral ODI series victory for Australia’s women.
They have not lost a one-day series since they were beaten by England in 2013, and they have not lost a series to New Zealand since 1999.
Australia underperformed with the bat, despite 87 from Haynes, as off-spinner Leigh Kasperek took a career-best 6-46.
However, the White Ferns were reduced to 7-2 after just nine balls, and struggled against Australia’s accurate bowling.
The final match of the series takes place in Tauranga on Saturday (3:00 BST).
