    Proposed changes are to accommodate new ranges at Robertson Barracks.

    The issue

    This proposal notes the following key issues:

    • the Danger Area around Robertson Barracks, D214, is no longer fit-for-purpose
    • the Australian Army propose a small southern expansion to the Danger Area
    • there are no changes to vertical limits, hours of activity, or Danger Area contact.


    To provide relevant stakeholders with information regarding a proposed change to YBBB/D214 Robertson Barracks danger area lateral limits.


    The Australian Army propose an amendment to the lateral limits of the YBBB/D214 Robertson Barracks danger area to meet the safety requirements of new live fire range infrastructure. The amendment will ensure that the Danger Area safely encompasses the following facilities:

    • Small Teams Training Facility, used for non-lethal training ammunition, shotgun and explosive breaching
    • Forward Arming and Refuelling Point and associated ammunition storage point, and
    • The Mask Test Facility for gas exposure testing. The changes extend the southern limit by approximately 650 metres, as depicted in Figure 1.

    The amended dimensions are as follows:



    LATERAL LIMITS: 122201S 1305855E - 122145S 1305924E

    122155S 1310003E - 122306S 1310019E

    122404S 1305940E – 122507S 1305938E

    122508S 1305821E - 122338S 1305821E

    122201S 1305855E


    HOURS OF ACTIVITY: H24 or as amended by NOTAM
