Australian Minister for Defense Senator David Johnston announced the entry of the Royal Australian Navy Fleet into Sydney Harbor for the International Fleet Review.

Senator Johnston said the International Fleet Review was planned in partnership with the NSW Government and the City of Sydney and will draw around 40 warships, 16 tall ships, more than 60 aircraft, 10 military bands and 8,000 sailors from 17 nations around the world.

The nations participating include Australia, Brunei, China, France, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Micronesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Tonga, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

“This is a significant event for the Royal Australian Navy,” Senator Johnston said, noting that seven ships HMA Ships Sydney, Darwin, Perth, Parramatta, Bundaberg, Diamontina and Huon would simulate the historic October 4, 1913 arrival in to the harbor.

“Their arrival will be supported by a Navy helicopter display at Bradley’s Head and a 21 Gun Salute.”

The long weekend brings a full schedule of activity for the International Fleet Review including a fireworks and lightshow display on Saturday night.

Saturday is a day of particular significance, with aviation formation flypasts and the much anticipated Ceremonial Fleet Review by the Governor General of Australia and viewed by the His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

The International Fleet Review includes the RAN Sea Power Conference 2013 and Pacific 2013 International Maritime Congress and Exposition being held at Darling Harbor from October 7-9, 2013.
