South Pacific - 29 October to December 2006

The ADF's planned response to political instability and eventual coup in Fiji during the period 29 October to December 2006. A Special Operations Task Group (SOTG) was embarked in HMAS Kanimbla to plan for the possible requirement to evaculate Australian nationals.

In the end, the situation in Fiji remained free from violent incidents and commercial aviation flights were allowed to operate without disruption. As a result, the ADF was not required to conduct Non-Combatant Evacuation Operations (NEO).
