"Operation Bali Assist" was the name given to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) evacuation of injured Australians and foreign nationals after the Bali terrorist bombing on 12 October 2002. The operation involved the triage, stabilisation and evacuation of 66 critically ill patients from Bali to Darwin over 21 hours. Subsequently, the patients were stabilised in Royal Darwin Hospital (RDH) and then, under direction of Emergency Management Australia (EMA), transferred to various centres in Australia.
