The Defence vision for the Cultana Training Area (CUTA) Redevelopment Phase 1 Project is to create a state of the art training establishment in South Australia (SA) that enables Brigade level manoeuvre and live firing exercises.

Expansion of the Cultana Training Area is required to support future joint training needs and the capability of 1st Brigade and 7th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (7 RAR) Battle Group, which is established at Edinburgh, SA. The current and projected usage of the existing training area is not environmentally sustainable beyond the short term and the expansion of the Cultana Training Area is critical to maintaining Defence capability. An expanded Cultana Training Area also offers an environment to conduct future air to ground, ground to air and ship to shore training activities.

The CUTA Redevelopment Project involves the construction of:

  • Trunk Infrastructure
  • Site Infrastructure
  • Road Network
  • Range Control Main Building and associated infrastructure
  • Range Control Warehouse
  • Multi Bay Magazine
  • Waste Shelter
  • Ammunition Transfer Points
  • Vehicle Wash Bay
  • Urban Operations Training Facility
  • Combined Arms Range

In addition to the works at CUTA, a new Earth Covered Building (ECB) at RAAF Base Edinburgh will be constructed for the permanent storage of explosive to support CUTA and wider Defence operations.
