Exail.comThe Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Mark Hammond, AO, RAN, has opened the Navy’s gangways and bases, proudly launching Navy Week for 2024. Over the next seven days, events will be held in every Australian state and territory.

The Navy will celebrate its tradition and heritage through ceremonial sunsets, fleet base open days and a range of community events with our people, their families and naval capabilities in focus. The week will conclude on 1 March with the Navy celebrating its 123rd birthday.

The Australian community and billions of people around the world rely on the strength and protection that navies provide both above and below the sea – the natural resources and goods transported on the oceans, the seabed cables that connect our modern world. In this context and with the evolution of maritime capabilities and technologies it has never been a more exciting time to serve in the Royal Australian Navy.

Vice Admiral Hammond said: “It’s an honour to open Navy Week and see our people who serve, their wonderful families, and the broader Australian community come together to celebrate and recognise the crucial role Navy plays in protecting our nation’s economic prosperity and the Australian way of life. Navy Week 2024 highlights the importance of our people and their families to enabling fleet readiness. Our power at sea is derived from the wellbeing of our Navy people and the enduring support from their families back home. Our people are our greatest asset. Dedicated, trained, extraordinary Australians committed to Navy’s role are our competitive edge. Without our people and the support of their families none of our work would be possible.”
