NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the silver fern across The Sydney Opera House is a symbol of solidarity, support and respect for New Zealand.

‘We feel the loss in Christchurch especially deeply given the closeness of our two countries. It is as though this has occurred on our own soil,’ she said.

‘Not only are New Zealanders our close friends and often family, but we share the same proud values of freedom, diversity and democracy.’

‘Its important to be here standing with you because as Prime Minister Ardern said yesterday, an attack against one is an attack against all of us,’ Mr Morrison told reporters. 

‘From all communities who love peace, who love the freedoms that we have both here in Australia and New Zealand and the peace loving peoples of the world. This is what is under attack.’ 

Mr Morrison urged for Australians to unite against hatred and intolerance, saying it was ‘an attack on all peace loving peoples, all innocent peoples’. 

‘And that’s why we can all stand together in support of our Muslim brothers and sisters who were the specific targets of this attack,’ Mr Morrison said.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten met with the President of Islamic Council of Victoria Mohamed Mohadeen at the Islamic Council of Victoria in Melbourne on Saturday. 

During his visit, Mr Shorten made an impassioned plea to stop giving ‘oxygen’ to the ‘evil jokers at the margins’ who perpetrate hate speech.

He said the majority of Australians felt ‘impotent, outraged, disgusted, ashamed’ over the mass shootings on Friday.

Mr Shorten later told reporters that Labor would support a parliamentary censure motion of ‘rogue’ Queensland senator Fraser Anning following comments widely condemned as anti-Islamic.

Speaking at the Islamic Council of Victoria and supported by fellow MPs Mark Dreyfus, Peter Khalil, Maria Vambakinou and Tim Watts, Mr Shorten said most Australians stood in solidarity with the Islamic community.

‘There are…millions of Australians who feel solidarity with you today,’ he said during his speech in Melbourne, adding he was in a room full of people who were ‘first and foremost’ Australians.

‘It was an Australian who did this, but this is not an Australian who represents Australia.

‘Now is the time to repudiate once and for all not just the violence, but the circumstances, the hate speech, that fuels the violence.’

Tributes have been laid at Australian places of worship, with the Australian flag flying at half mast on multiple public buildings across the country.

‘Standing with you for peace and love,’ one card, left with flowers at Canberra Mosque, said 

Moments before Saturday’s NRL match between the New Zealand Warriors and Canterbury Bulldogs in Auckland, there was a minute’s silence in honour of the victims of the shootings. 

On Friday evening, Ms Berejiklian and state opposition leader Michael Daly attended Lakemba mosque in Sydney’s south-west as more than 1000 Muslims prayed for the victims of the terror attack.

Emotional scenes were captured as a defiant stream of Muslims ignored increased terror threats to Lakemba mosque in Sydney’s south-west to attend Friday evening prayers.

Dozens of police surrounded the mosque before the prayers began at 7.17pm to ensure everyone was safe.

During a press conference on Saturday, Ms Berejiklian said her visit to the mosque moved her.

‘What I saw last night was a community in deep shock and deep grief. We will band together and we will heal together,’ she said. 

Flowers have been left outside the Arundel mosque on the Gold Coast as well as at the Marion Mosque in Adelaide.

Premier Steven Marshall has lowered the Australian flag to half-mast as a sign of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives. 

Authorities have confirmed 49 people were killed in the massacre and at least 40 were injured.
