Exercise Brolga Strike

JCU’s Chancellor Mr Bill Tweddell joined other leaders of the Townsville community earlier this month as guests of Brigadier Chris Field, Commander of 3rd Brigade, to observe the Brigade's combined arms, live-fire, deliberate attacks on Hervey's Range.

“Observing 3rd Brigade in operation at the conclusion of Exercise Brolga Strike was a real privilege,” Mr Tweddell said.

“It was a reminder of the important role of the Australian Defence Force, as well as its many contributions to the cultural, economic, sporting and social life of our local community.

“JCU's partnership with the ADF is one of the ways the University seeks to help our region meet its workforce needs, solve its key challenges and achieve its current and future aspirations.”
