HMAS Tobruk future yet to be decided

THE Department of Defence has completed the demilitarisation of the HMAS Tobruk, but the ship's retirement plans have not been decided.

A department spokesman said there was still no decision on its future.

"As with other supply vessels of her age, HMAS Tobruk is known to contain a significant amount of hazardous materials."

"A preferred option for disposal is yet to be formally endorsed."
