Refugee advocates will go ahead with a planned blockade of a Wilson car park in the Melbourne CBD despite the company announcing it is withdrawing from offshore detention centres.

Wilson Security said on Thursday it will withdraw from Australia's offshore detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru by the end of its contract in October 2017.

A group of refugee activists will be protesting against the company on Saturday at Melbourne Central, saying Wilson's withdrawal didn't happen soon enough and the federal government should immediately close the camps.
