Multiple people have been killed after a gunman opened fire at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

"I'm horrified by the reports I'm following of the serious shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand," Mr Morrison tweeted on Friday.

"The situation is still unfolding but our thoughts and prayers are with our Kiwi cousins."

Labor leader Bill Shorten said Australia and New Zealand are family.

"We grieve with our brothers and sisters today," he said.

"We send our love and condolences, our sorrow and solidarity in this terrible time of fear and pain and grief."

Australian diplomats in New Zealand are seeking information on whether any citizens were affected by the shooting.

"The Australian high commission in Wellington is making urgent enquiries with local authorities to determine whether any Australians have been affected," a Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesman told AAP.

NZ-Aust bond unchanged by attack: Ardern.
The Australian background of accused Christchurch shooter won't affect the tight trans-Tasman bond, New Zealand leader Jacinda Ardern says. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says accused gunman's Australian background won't affect trans-Tasman relations. Police have charged the accused with murder following last Friday's shootings at two Christchurch mosques that killed 50 worshippers and injured dozens more.
