Australian Defence Force and United States Government personnel will conduct counter-terrorism training in Brisbane, Sydney and Wollongong in mid-to-late November 2019.
The training will be conducted during the day and night and involves responses to simulated terrorist scenarios.
The public should not be alarmed if they see or hear military vehicles, unmanned aerial surveillance systems and military personnel carrying weapons. Blank/paint ammunition and pyrotechnics will be used during some aspects of the training.
People who see the training should not be concerned that the locations are under any form of actual threat.
Training such as this helps ensure Australia maintains its world-class military response capabilities in collaboration with our US partners.
Defence is unable to provide media access or further information, including specific timings, regarding this training in order to protect operational tactics, techniques and procedures.
