Defence completes Tropical Cyclone Trevor support mission

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has concluded its assistance to the Northern Territory (NT) Government, after successfully contributing to Australia’s largest pre-cyclone evacuation operation ahead of Tropical Cyclone Trevor.
Three Royal Australian Air Force C-130J Hercules transport aircraft transported more than 950 residents out of Groote Eylandt and McArthur River Mine airfield near Borroloola on 22-24 March.
ADF personnel also assisted with the establishment of evacuation centres in Katherine and Darwin for hundreds of evacuees.
