The rockets and aircraft on display remind us of a time when the test range at Woomera saw hundreds of research rockets launched. A great reminder of the part that Australia played in the early days of rocketry and satelites. Well worth the visit.

It was worth making the 30 minute detour to check out this place. Didn't need much time but fun to see. It was just another pleasant stop on a very long journey. The affiliated inside museum was still closed at 9:30 am so not sure...More

This park has a great display of planes, rockets and missiles in beautifully kept grounds. There is also a display of rockets that have been recovered after re-entry and crashing into the desert. The town is very well laid out with gardens and parks around...More

Really interesting to see these rockets on display. It is a part of our history (good or bad), that is worth learning about.
