HMAS Toowoomba begins journey home

The HMAS Childers has returned to Darwin following an extensive naval voyage."

Australia has played a key role in counter-terrorism and maritime security in the Middle East over the past year, sending multiple Navy vessels to the region.

HMAS Toowoomba, an Anzac Class Frigate, is one of these Australian Defence Force (ADF) ships that has contributed to the Combined Task Force (CTF-150) - but now the vessel is heading home.

The departure earlier this month follows an eventful tour, one which saw a massive drug bust and multiple boarding operations of suspicious vessels.

Another noteworthy event involved delivering 160 litres of water to a dhow which was dead in the water after propulsion failed. The crew also rendered assistance with the repairs.

"Toowoomba has definitively been the backbone of CTF-150 operations over the past few months; Australia can once again be very proud of your remarkable success. Bravo Zulu to you all and fair winds and following seas for your transit back home," said Commander of CTF-150 Rear Admiral Jones.

Commander Cath Hayes, commanding officer of the Toowoomba, also spoke to the performance of the crew while deployed.

"I am extremely proud of the combined efforts of each of the 191 members of Toowoomba's team. Working with the CMF team under CTF-150 has been very rewarding."

HMAS Toowoomba will likely head back to the region in 2015, with the skilled crew aboard eager to continue promoting security.

There's no denying the value of having such a capable vessel on station in the Middle East and ready to respond to any threats or emergency situations.
