The most important is to ensure she has a good lawyer, and then also to provide some support for her as her state of mind will be an issue. I can refer this to an Australian lawyer if she needs to organise a lawyer for court

While she is in custody she may need personal things and perhaps clothes, but you would need to visit and get permission for that.
Sometimes the NZ High Commission will provide some support as well
