Starting up the centre

After Port Lincoln we travelled up the centre of Eyre Peninsula. Now we are really starting up the centre of Australia. First stop was Woomera. It is the largest test and evaluation range in the world. Tracking, observation, measurement and record of performance of missiles bombs etc was vitally important as well as dangerous and this combine with national security is mainly why Woomera was out of bounds for many years and a ‘mystery’. Outer atmospheric research as well as hypersonic research is vitally important today looking towards future aviation and space missions and satellites. A fascinating place but outside the museums though there is nothing to recommend the town to visitors. We couldn't wait to start our BCA work TA Roxby Downs. We had no idea of just what to expect here.
