The group of HMA vessels, embarking 1000 Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel, left the Fremantle harbour, in Western Australia, to carry out a series of military training exercises during visits in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.

“The Australian Defence Force (ADF) enjoys a long-standing relationship with security forces throughout South and Southeast Asia,” defense industry minister Linda Reynolds said in Freemantle. “These relationships are strengthened by annual exercises and engagements, such as the Indo-Pacific Endeavour series.”
