About Marine Rotational Force - Darwin
In November 2011, President Barack Obama and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the deployment of Marines to Darwin and Northern Australia for around six months at a time. During this period, they will conduct exercises and training on a rotational basis with the Australian Defence Force. The intent in the coming years is to establish a rotational presence of up to a 2,500-person Marine Air Ground Task Force.  The presence of Marines in Australia reflects the enduring alliance and common security interests in the region and improves interoperability between the US and Australia.
