Exercise Pandaroo 2016

Soldiers from the Australian Army and the People’s Liberation Army of China have completed 10 days of adventurous training in New South Wales as part of Exercise Pandaroo 2016, 14-23 September. The exercise is designed to build teamwork, friendship and trust between the two nations through a series of challenging activities in difficult environments requiring close teamwork amongst participants. Having come straight onto the exercise after two weeks of survival training in the Northern Territory outback as part of Exercise Kowari 2016, the participants faced the adventure training with newfound friendships forged through their recent shared adversity. The soldiers took part in white-water kayaking, caving and mountain-bike riding before helping one another face their fears during an over-water Tyrolean traverse above the raging waters of Jervis Bay. Exercise Pandaroo is a bilateral training exercise involving 10 participants from each country and is aimed to enhance multi-national relationships and marks an important milestone in defence cooperation.
