Defence SA - Silver Sponsor

South Australia – the Defence State is the epicentre of naval shipbuilding activity in Australia. 

Home to world-class defence precincts and innovation hubs, South Australia is spearheading some of the most significant maritime and naval shipbuilding projects in the history of the nation, creating unprecedented opportunities for industry.


Working closely with Defence and industry, Defence SA targets investment and expansion opportunities, drives and supports the delivery of major defence projects and facilities, and pursues the location of additional Defence units and capabilities within the state.


As South Australia’s lead government agency for all defence matters, Defence SA also plays a key role in supporting the Australian Government’s strategic defence policy through increasing local industry participation and ensuring state-of-the-art infrastructure and a highly skilled, industry-ready workforce is in place to underpin defence projects.
