New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says refugees on Manus Island will be her sole focus when she meets with Malcolm Turnbull again this week.

The approximately 420 asylum seekers and refugees choosing to remain at the now-closed Manus Island processing centre have been without food, water or medical supplies for nearly two weeks.

Police at the protest at the Australian High Commission.

"Australia has illegally detained these asylum-seekers for years now, and now they've essentially abandoned them and they've got no food, no water, no medicine, and no power".

Ms Ardern has continued to push New Zealand's offer to accept 150 refugees and asylum seekers from Australia's offshore detention centres since her first face-to-face meeting with her Australian counterpart in Sydney a week ago.

She admitted persisting with the issue had the risk of her becoming an irritant to Australia, but said it was important to highlight New Zealand's ability to assist. Australia has consistently rejected the offer, saying it represents a "back door" to Australia, something it will not abide. "We made the offer because we saw a great need", she said. No matter what label you put on it there is absolute need and there is harm being done, ' she said on Sunday.

"We see that we have a role to play here, we're very eager to play that role and as I say I'll be having another conversation with the Prime Minister in the Philippines".

These have raised human right issues until it was ruled as illegal and ordered to be shut down by the PNG Supreme Court.

Asked about reports that Papua New Guinean authorities will soon remove the men from the centre, Ms Ardern said she would once again raise her country's offer to take refugees from Manus Island with Mr Turnbull. The camp officially closed on October 31, but the detainees, who were sent to the island as part of Australia's offshore detention program, have refused to relocate to temporary accommodations.

Earlier on Monday two Australian politicians spoke out against New Zealand's offer. "We don't want to go to Australia, let us go to NZ".

Australia pays for and maintains effective control of the PNG detention centre, according to the United Nations, apex courts in both countries and independent observers.

With the situation worsening by the day, the PNG government is demanding a solution while Australia is denying responsibility.
