Climate and regional security will be discussed at a meeting between Foreign Minister Penny Wong and her New Zealand counterpart Nanaia Mahuta.
The talks will take place in Canberra on Friday, following the first ministerial consultation between the pair in Wellington earlier this year.
"We are closely aligned in our responses to regional and global challenges, and we share aspirations in common with fellow members of the Pacific Islands Forum closer to home," Ms Mahuta said.
"I anticipate discussion on cooperation in the Pacific, including support for Pacific nations for mitigation and adaption to the impacts of climate change, and on the geo-strategic situation in the wider Indo-Pacific."
They will also discuss Russian President Vladimir Putin's illegal invasion of Ukraine and Iran's human rights violations in the wake of the deadly protests against its authoritarian regime.
Next year will mark a series of milestones for the trans-Tasman relationship including closer economic ties, the special travel arrangement and 80 years of diplomatic missions in Australia and New Zealand.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has flagged an easier pathway to citizenship and voting rights for Kiwis, pledging to have a proposed framework ready by early 2023.
Mr Albanese has also promised to take on a more "commonsense" stance on the deportation of New Zealand citizens convicted of crimes in Australia.
Ongoing deportations of New Zealand nationals who have lived the majority of their lives in Australia, has been a sticking point in the relationship.
