Woomera

The outback town of Woomera celebrates its space race history, with attractions such as the Woomera Space Museum and Missile Park. Here you can get a feel for the town's role as a rocket and missile base.

Woomera was founded as a joint project with the United Kingdom for testing experimental rockets and missiles of all types. Two satellites were placed into orbit from Woomera - Australia was the third country in the world to launch a satellite. Today, you can wander through Missile Park and gaze up in awe at rockets on display.

Visit the Woomera Heritage Centre, displaying Aboriginal artefacts, as well as rocket and missile memorabilia. There's also a bowling alley and outback diner inside.
