Royal Australian Navy HMA Ships Anzac, Toowoomba and Success have completed their concurrent port visits to Malaysia and the Philippines as part of a three-month south-east Asia deployment.

Anzac and Success conducted a logistic resupply, during a port visit to Subic Bay, as well as local engagements with the Armed Forces of the Philippines and government dignitaries. This was Anzac and Success’  first port visit together during the deployment.

In Kota Kinabalu, Toowoomba conducted an official function with Malaysian Armed Forces and local officials before participating in a passage exercise with the Royal Malaysian Navy on departure from the port.

Outgoing Chief of Joint Operations, Vice Admiral David Johnston said the visits provided an opportunity to strengthen the military ties with the Armed Forces of Malaysia and the Philippines.

"Our enduring military to military engagement activities contribute to security and stability in the region," VADM Johnston said.

"We have long-standing relationships with the Armed Forces of Malaysia and the Philippines, and these visits provide a great opportunity to build new friendships."

HMA Ships Anzac, Toowoomba and Success will participate in a series of exercises with nations in the region, including Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam.
