Woomera, South Australia, is a desert town poplulated by about 1,700 people and was established in 1947 as a rocket range by a joint project between Britain and Australia. Now a wide area nearby is operated as the Woomera Prohibited Area. Recently, Kistler Aerospace Corporation has started building a commercial satellite launching facility. A bus service (about 6 hours ride) is available from Adelaide, the capital of South Australia. There are facilities for residents and visitors: a supermarket, a hotel, a hospital and emergency services.

This is the center of the town where we have a flat.

Same as above but on a foggy day (which is rare).

You can meet famous animals around here... (Emu)

This summer (1998) is so wet and the dry salt lake is full of water...
