Growing Chinese cabbage, also Wong bok, wong nga pak

I lived in NZ in the North Island and wish to grow the Chinese Cabbage Wombok that I use to find readily available in Aussie in the supermarkets. I have looked everywhere and no one seems to know what I'm talking about when I asked in the supermarkets here in NZ. They only seen to stock the Asian green Bok Choy. I wish to be able to grow it if possible so, want to know if I can get seeds here in NZ.
