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
