This article provides an update on recent major developments in international arbitration in Australia during 2015 and 2016.

An overview of recent court decisions is also provided, including the much publicised decision of Giedo van der Garde v Sauber Motorsport AG  VSC 80. Overall, these developments show that Australia continues to build upon its strengths as a potential venue for international arbitrations and is moving closer to becoming a key player in the competitive Asia Pacific market.
