Woomera Traveller’s Village & Caravan Park

Woomera Traveller’s Village & Caravan Park is the only spot you can stop really close to Woomera unless you free camp at Pimba.

Facilities are older style and in need of upgrading but are kept relatively clean. Cudgee bar is located on site in an freight container and is well appointed for a quiet drink late in the afternoon but the drinks are expensive. The caravan spots are relatively flat but are sandy.

The amenities were clean, service and check in was smooth and friendly.  Join the owners and residents at the Cudgee bar and feel welcomed.

Woomera and the surrounding desert is beautiful and Woomera’s history is fascinating.

History

“The woomera or spear thrower made from Mulga, Corkwood, Snappy Gum or Supple Jack woods. Attached to the tip of the woomera with Spinifex resin is a barb to which the spear hooks onto. The base of the woomera is a grip moulded from Spinifex resin. The woomera is used as leverage in launching the spear.”
The town, or village, of Woomera is located in the south east corner of the Woomera Prohibited Area (WPA); colloquially known as the Woomera Rocket Range.
Established as a restricted access township in 1947, Woomera Defence Village is an Australian Defence Force (ADF) facility supporting the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Woomera Test Range (WTR) which today is used to evaluate military and civilian missile, ordnance, and aerospace systems.

Woomera is in the ‘outback’ desert area of South Australia, approximately 488 km north of Adelaide. An easement through the WPA allows public transit on the Trans-Australian Railway, The Ghan, and the Stuart Highway. Travellers are prohibited from leaving these routes. In 1982 restrictions on public access to Woomera township were lifted, allowing the town to develop as a tourist destination, while maintaining its support role for the WTR.

Woomera has a Heritage and history museum, missile park, supermarket, theatre, swimming pool, observatory (selected nights) among other facilities.
