During the Second World War, heavy cruiser HMAS Australia II protected Australia’s borders, trawled the Atlantic for German battleships and served alongside US forces in the Pacific where she survived both the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Battle of Leyte Gulf. She withstood mutiny, the first murder on an Australian war ship and multiple kamikaze attacks. Join journalist and author Mike Carlton as he delves into the intriguing history of the last ship to bear Australia’s name.
