Australia has deployed a navy frigate to defend oil tankers from Iranian attacks in the Strait of Hormuz.
The warship set sail for the six-month mission on Monday against a backdrop of deteriorating relations between the United States and Iran.
The federal opposition supports the deployment, just as it did when Australia sent a surveillance plane and handful of troops to the Middle East late last year.
But Labor will not support sending any more resources to the Persian Gulf.
"I support our deployment to assist passage economics in the Strait of Hormuz but I don't support any further escalation of our engagement," Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese told Triple M Hobart.
