Australia plans $747 million budget to upgrade defence bases in Indo-Pacific

Morrison announced the multi-million dollar investment stating that the objective was to pursue peace rather than sending any message to China.

The multi-million investment would upgrade four key training areas and ranges in the Northern Territory to enable the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to conduct simulated training exercises and remain battle-ready.

Essential upgrades will be made to four key military training areas and weapon ranges in the Northern Territory, including Robertson Barracks, Kangaroo Flats, Mount Bundey and Bradshaw.

“These defence training areas and facilities will support greater engagement with our Indo-Pacific neighbours and our allies, and to conduct small and large scale military exercises across a number of different scenarios,” Morrison said.

“This investment will deliver a jobs boom for the Northern Territory,” he said, adding “We continue to invest more than 270 billion dollars in defence capability across Australia over the next decade, ensuring we have a capable defence force to meet a changing global environment while backing thousands of ADF men and women with the newest technology and training.”
