Abstract: The northern part of the zoning area forms part of the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area (SWBTA). The training area was acquired by the Commonwealth Government in 1965 for defence training purposes. The area has considerable strategic importance to the Department of Defence being the only location on the east coast of Australia where large-scale joint and combined exercises can be conducted. The training area is managed by the Australian Army from a base in Rockhampton but is also used by the Australian Navy and Air Force as well as overseas forces.
