The Australian Defence Force and US Marine Corps' Marine Air-Ground Task Force, Marine Rotational Force–Darwin, have completed Exercise Crocodile Response in the Northern Territory, the Australian Department of Defence announced on 6 September.

Exercise Crocodile Response is a Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) activity held at military bases across Darwin and the Mount Bundey Training Area.

It includes training scenarios that test how Australia and the US cooperate in responding to regional humanitarian crises. HADR activites included Royal Australian Air Force C-27J Spartan crews dropping aid supplies over the Mount Bundey Training Area.

The exercise was conducted in partnership with other government agencies including the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the US Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance and the Australian Medical Assistance Team.

Officials from the Indonesian armed forces, Indonesia’s National Disaster Management Agency, and Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency observed the exercise and shared their operational HADR experience.
