Exercise Talisman Sabre 2017 – Amphibious landing rehearsals at Upstart Bay

The Department of Defence wishes to advise that between 6 and 11 July 2017, amphibious beach landing rehearsals will be conducted in Upstart Bay on Wunjunga Beach.

The beach landing rehearsals precede the main activities forming Exercise Talisman Sabre 2017 which will be conducted in the Shoalwater Bay area. The rehearsals will involve the use of amphibious landing craft during daylight hours and movement of vehicles and troops within the intertidal zone of an approximately 2000 metre section of the beach.

While Defence seeks to minimise disruptions to the general public there may be periods during which sections of the beach will have limited access as a result of the activity and the need to maintain a safe distance.
