Australian Defence Force military training in Parkes, NSW, in March and April 2020

Australian Defence Force personnel will conduct military training in the Parkes area of western New South Wales from late-March to early-April 2020.

The training will be conducted during the day and night and involves responses to simulated military scenarios.

The public should not be alarmed if they see or hear military aircraft, vehicles and military personnel carrying weapons. Blank ammunition and pyrotechnics will be used during some aspects of the training.

People who see or hear the training should not be concerned that any of the locations are under any form of actual threat.

Training such as this helps ensure Australia maintains its world-class military response capabilities.

Defence is unable to provide media access or further information, including specific timings, regarding the training in order to protect operational tactics, techniques and procedures.
