Rain in Brisbane held up Australia's pursuit of victory on day four after they set New Zealand a world record target of 504 to win the first Test.

The hosts declared on their overnight total of 264 for 4, but rain forced an early lunch with the Kiwis 48 for 1.

Opener Martin Guptill resisted for 133 balls for his 23, while Kane Williamson added 59 to his first-innings 140 but fell just before tea.

The rain returned to wash out the final session with the Black Caps on 142 for 3.
