Members of a Maori iwi - or tribe - living in Australia will be able to have their say on a major negotiation between their people and the New Zealand Crown.
Senior government minister Andrew Little will travel across Sydney, Brisbane and Perth next week as part of the New Zealand government's talks with members of Northland's Ngapuhi.
He's been travelling New Zealand to speak with Ngapuhi members as part of historical redress settlement talks - which may be worth as much as $NZ300 million ($A274 million).
"It is crucial that Ngapuhi in Ahitereiria (Australia) have that same opportunity," Mr Little said.
"I will be there to hear feedback from Australia-based Ngapuhi and to answer their questions directly."
About 25,000 Ngapuhi are currently thought to be living in Australia.
Since the 1980s, New Zealand's government has heard historic grievances over breaches of the "Treaty of Waitangi", and negotiated settlements with affected Maori groups.
Signed between some iwi and the Crown in 1840, the Treaty is considered a central feature of New Zealand's constitution and a key part of Maori-Crown relations.
Settlements can include formal apologies, financial redress, land transfer and even changes to geographical names.
Ngapuhi is the largest iwi in New Zealand, with about 125,000 people identifying with it in 2013, and the settlement could be the biggest in the country's history.
The largest historic settlement to date was worth $NZ170 million.
