This bilat­er­al mar­itime exer­cise, which was code-named “Hae­dori-Wal­la­by” after the nick­names of Kore­an and Aus­tralian naval forces, was con­duct­ed in waters north­east of Jeju Island on May 28–29 for the first time in his­to­ry.

Three naval ves­sels, includ­ing the Aus­tralian escort ship Bal­larat and ROKS Sejong the Great destroy­er, and a P‑3 mar­itime patrol plane and a Lynx anti-sub­ma­rine heli­copter took part in the drill.

The exer­cise was aimed to improve sub­stan­tive joint tac­ti­cal oper­a­tions abil­i­ties con­sist­ing of anti­sub­ma­rine com­bat, a sub­ma­rine pur­suit, tac­ti­cal maneu­vers and a mar­itime inter­cep­tion, to skill up tac­ti­cal com­mand and con­trol pro­ce­dures and to check mutu­al oper­abil­i­ty of equip­ment.

Com­mand­ing Offi­cer of HMAS Bal­larat Com­man­der Jonathan Ear­ley and his crew had an excit­ing time dur­ing their stay in S. Korea with those of the Sejong the Great war­ship, such as pay­ing a vis­it to the U.N. Memo­r­i­al Ceme­tery, vis­it­ing his­toric sites and join­ing com­mu­ni­ty ser­vices, to improve mutu­al under­stand­ing between the two navies.
