Occurring every two years, Talisman Sabre is a major exercise reflecting the closeness of our alliance and strength of the enduring military relationship.

TS19 is the eighth iteration of the exercise and consists of a field training exercise incorporating force preparation (logistic) activities, amphibious landings, land force manoeuvre, urban operations, air operations, maritime operations and Special Forces activities.

Nearly 35,000 military personnel from the US and Australia are set to take part in what will be the biggest ever Talisman Sabre.

Historically, Talisman Sabre exercises have been conducted across northern and eastern Australia, and within Australia’s exclusive economic zone. Additional participants from third-party nations may participate or observe the exercise if invited.

Forces from Canada, New Zealand and the UK have received such an invite, with delegations from India and the Republic of Korea will also observe the exercise, with a total of 18 nations from across the Indo-Pacific invited to an international visitors program. 

Please scroll through the image gallery above for a look at the exercise so far.
