Australia and Japan have a strong and broad-ranging security relationship. The two countries' alliance with the United States, cooperation in the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, commonly known as the Quad and commitment to 'free and open' strategic relations within the Indo-Pacific region reflect their complementary foreign policy and security interests.

The 2007 Joint Declaration on Security Cooperation provided a foundation for wide-ranging cooperation on security issues between Australia and Japan, including in law enforcement, border security, economic security, health security, climate change, energy transition, counter-terrorism, disarmament and counter-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, maritime and aviation security, peace operations and humanitarian relief operations.

A renewed Joint Declaration on Security Cooperation (JDSC) issued by Prime Minister Albanese and Prime Minister Kishida in October 2022 deepened and expanded cooperation to respond to the most pressing security challenges in the region.
