Australia has maintained a diplomatic presence in Brunei since it gained its full independence from the UK in 1984. However, historical links stretch back to WWII, when in 1945, Australian forces landed at Muara Beach as part of the Allied campaign to end the occupation of Borneo.
Australia has a strong education relationship with Brunei. Around 12,000 Bruneian students have studied in Australia, making it the second most popular destination behind the UK. There are around 450 Bruneian students studying in Australia at any one time.
