Christmas Island residents have reported another arrival of asylum seekers on Thursday.
Gordon Thomson, a shire councillor on the island, told Fairfax Media that he had seen asylum seekers arriving at the island's jetty on Navy vessels.
It is believed to be the second boat of asylum seekers to arrive at Christmas Island since the federal government's Operation Sovereign Borders began, under which the government no longer provides details of asylum seeker arrivals as they happen.
The government's initial plan is to hold weekly briefings instead.
Mr Thomson said he estimated there was about 80 suspected asylum seekers, some of them children.
He was unable to confirm where the suspected asylum seekers were from.
Residents of Christmas Island said on Monday they are preparing to thwart the new Coalition government's attempt to control information about boat arrivals, saying they will ''tell the world'' about asylum seekers who are brought to the Island.
Mr Thomson, who is also general secretary of the Union of Christmas Island Workers, said those on Christmas Island would do everything they could to announce boats arriving.
''We can tell the world, which is what we're doing and why we're doing it,'' he told ABC Radio.
