It's an additional order, to beef up the RAN's helo stocks (the original 24 replaced the S-70B Seahawk).

I suppose it goes hand-in-hand with the RAN's new ships (and subs...), and general modernisation/expansion of its ocean-going ASW/ASuW capabilies.

Cynical me would suggest - somewhat tongue-in-cheek, and perhaps a little unfairly - that the Aussies are happy the MH-60R seems to work as advertised, straight out of the tin (no more Eurocopter/Airbus 'issues', whereby the customer unwittingly provides the OT&E, if not proof of concept...).

P.S. I had no problem with the link (right click > open in new tab)!
