HMAS Stirling is the primary operational support base for the Royal Australian Navy capability on the west coast of Australia. The existing infrastructure has reached or is nearing the end of its design life and will not continue to effectively support Navy operations without immediate and substantial refurbishment.
The HMAS Stirling Redevelopment Stage 3A Project aims to upgrade and refurbish existing key infrastructure and facilities to meet the requirements of current and projected operational and support capabilities.
