The inaugural Exercise Northern Shield has concluded in Exmouth, Western Australia, with around 1000 Australian troops and almost a million pounds of cargo crossing the continent in the past week.

Exercise Northern Shield was the first major military activity to be held in the remote North West region, practising the ADF’s ability to deploy a large joint force across significant distances very quickly.

Infantry, vehicles and aircraft converged on Exmouth from as far as Canberra, Amberley, Brisbane, Sydney, Darwin and Tindal. Exercise Northern Shield was conducted from 19th – 24th September 2015.
