Defence Establishment Myambat

Defence Establishment Myambat, also referred to as the Myambat Ammunition Depot, is an Australian Defence Force munitions storage facility located approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) west of Denman in the Upper Hunter region of New South Wales, Australia.The facility was established in 1938, and has been in use since that time. A factsheet published by the Department of Defence in 2012 stated that "the facility stores all forms of ammunition used by the Australian Defence Forces". In addition, its demolition range is used by private companies to test explosives intended for use in mines. At this time the entire site covered an area of 17 square kilometres (6.6 sq mi).In 1991 the Parliament of Australia's Joint Standing Committee on Public Works recommended that 21 earth covered storehouses be constructed at Myambat so that particularly hazardous types of ammunition could be stored in facilities which met NATO standards; the Canberra Times reported that this recommendation meant that the works were "almost certain" to take place. 34 explosive storehouses were eventually constructed during the early 1990s by the private company Spantech. A 2014 submission to a parliamentary inquiry provided by the Department of Defence described Defence Establishment Myambat as "Australia’s largest and most comprehensive ammunition storage depot".As of 2015, the facility was to be expanded and upgraded as part of the works being undertaken to accommodate the Royal Australian Air Force's Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II fighter aircraft. This will include building new earth-covered bunkers, as well as a storage facility for the F-35s' defensive countermeasures. The 2016 Defence White Paper also allocated funding to expand the facilities at Myambat and increase the stockpiles of ammunition stored there.

HMAS Leeuwin (naval base)

HMAS Leeuwin is a former Royal Australian Navy (RAN) shore establishment,[note a] located in Fremantle, Western Australia. In use between 1940 and 1984, the base reopened in 1986 under the control of the Australian Army as Leeuwin Barracks.

Commissioned in August 1940 as the naval depot for Fremantle, the base was adopted for use as a training facility after World War II, initially for RAN reservists and national servicemen, then as the Junior Recruit Training Establishment (JRTE) from 1960 until 1984. There was widespread sexual and physical abuse of trainees at the JRTE, with 10% of reports investigated by the Defence Abuse Response Taskforce relating to incidents at Leeuwin. Decommissioned from naval service in 1986, the base was later reopened under the control of the Australian Army as Leeuwin Barracks. In 2015, the Australian Government announced that the Leeuwin site will be sold off for residential development.
