The Indonesian–Malaysian Confrontation (Konfrontasi) occurred during the period 1962–66.
The conflict was part of Indonesia's opposition to the creation of Malaysia, initially on political grounds, which escalated into armed opposition. Most of the action took place in the border area between Indonesia and East Malaysia on the island of Borneo . Due to its obligations, Australia was forced to commit Army engineers and combat troops. The units included men of the Artillery, SAS, 3rd Battalion RAR  and 4th Battalion RAR. The Australian Navy was also involved in the confrontation.

The  Indonesian–Malaysian Confrontation (Konfrontasi) was an undeclared war.

During the conflict, Australia suffered:
15 Fatal Casualties and 21 Non Fatal Casualties.
