Fifteen ships with about 2,000 Defence personnel from seven Pacific nations set sail from Darwin Harbour for the military training Exercise Kakadu.

Maritime elements from Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and Thailand will focus on aspects of maritime warfare common to all the forces involved.  Over the 19 days of exercising, from 29 August to 14 September, graduated training activities and weapons practices are being conducted, including warfare and maritime security exercises and evolutions.
