USSC Director of Foreign Policy and Defence Professor Peter Dean is featured in an article discussing the Scherger RAAF base, located 25km east of Weipa in western Cape York.

Professor Dean tells NT News that “Scherger is one of those key military bases of the northern base network that will contribute to our ability to conduct operations in our region and to provide those deterrent effects.”

“Scherger will only become of increasing strategic and operational importance.”
