Deployed in late August, HMA Ships Canberra, Sirius and Anzac journeyed more than 32,000 kilometres through Southeast Asia, strengthening partnerships, building relationships and cooperating with eight countries in our immediate region.
Centred on a maritime task group, IPE 21 involved approximately 700 people, including ADF and civilian defence personnel, plus sea riders from partner nations. Engagements were modified in response to COVID-19.
