The vigil came shortly after the death toll from the eruption rose to 16, as efforts continued to recover all victims still missing almost a week after the active volcano erupted on Monday.

Friend John Mickel said the family was devastated and still in total shock.

"How do you book a holiday to New Zealand and have this happen? There is a sense of the enormity of how troubling that is and at a whole level," he said.

"There has been this outpouring of grief and questioning about why you would be allowed to go on an island like that.

"These are questions that will need to be answered in the fullness of time."

Julie and Jessica were remembered by close friends and family as "amazing, loving people who lived their lives to the fullest".

"The community has been rocked by this tragedy and so many people in the vicinity of Calamvale knew Julie and Jessica," Councillor Angela Owen said.

“There are a lot of Jessica’s school friends here, university friends, her AFL teammates but also many people in the community who knew Julie.

“They were very well known, very well liked and are being remembered as well-loved community members.

"Jessica is well known for her wonderful trumpet playing, her AFL career but also as just really genuine beautiful people."

Julie and Jessica, who were holidaying on cruise liner Ovation of the Seas, were touring the volcano when it erupted.

Initially reported missing, family members frantically called hospitals before New Zealand police confirmed their worst fears on Wednesday morning.

At least 16 people have died following the explosion, and dozens remain in hospitals in Australia and New Zealand being treated for serious injuries.
