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

The firefighters will arrive early in the new year and spend two days being briefed before they begin work on January 4.

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