Information

During the 1960's when the Woomera Rocket Range was in full swing, every station that was within the Woomera Prohibited Area had one of these bunkers that would keep them safe in the event that a Rocket launched from Woomera had trouble.

It has been reported that the bunkers were used for many other uses and many station people used the top of the bunkers to observe the Rockets that were launched.
