Re the aircraft from Perth
The Rescue Coordination Centre in Canberra
is part of AMSA (Australian Maritime Safety Authority) and it operates a number of Dornier aircraft from bases at Darwin
, which are set up to carry out these type of drops or responses with trained crew (although most taskings are over water).
That's why an aircraft would come from Perth

Thanks Jim, must be a pretty versatile aircraft.
