You can't get a Chinese marriage certificate, but you can have your marriage certificate authenticated by the Chinese embassy in order to make your marriage legal in China.

If you use your NZ passport to apply for visa, you will need to go to the CVASC in Australia to submit the following documents: application form, passport, residence permit in Australia, passport size photo, and round-trip tickets and hotel bookings. The cost is AUD 99.5 for a single entry visa.
