A group of 20 New Zealand firefighters will travel to Australia to help battle another dangerous fire season.

The New Zealand firefighters will spend two days being briefed before they begin fighting fires on 4 January.

Australia's bushfire season has started earlier than usual, with homes destroyed in Victoria in October.
