Join celebrations for Navy Week in the Northern Territory at this not-to-be-missed community event this August.

Get down to Mindil Beach by 6pm on Thursday 8 August to watch a spectacular military ceremony rarely performed in public.

Conducted by the Royal Australian Navy Band and HMAS Coonawarra, Ceremonial Divisions musters the ship’s company in their best uniforms for inspection by a reviewing senior officer. Sunset Ceremony is also steeped in tradition and honours the courage and sacrifice of the men and women who have served during war and peace.

This event is part of Navy Week in the NT, which runs from 5-10 August and thanks the NT community for its ongoing support to our Officers and Sailors.
