Cairns Secondary Academic Leaders had the opportunity to tour the HMAS Cairns Navy Base whilst the Patrol Boat HMAS Wollongong was docked.

Navy officers Aaron Sexton and James Carroll gave our young leaders an exclusive tour of the HMAS Wollongong. The crew kindly showed the students all areas of the boat from the Bridge to the engine room.

James spoke about the prerequisites and requirements to get into the Navy, including the roles and tasks, pay rates and different careers and qualifications that one can achieve in a career with the Navy. Our Leaders thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained great insight into potential Navy pathways.
