Len Beadell’s story of the establishment of Woomera Rocket Range

Laden with trig poles, theodolites – and porridge – Beadell and his team
built roads, laid out town sites and undertook an enormous survey
programme in order to prepare a test launching area in one of the most
isolated parts of the world. The problems ranged from taking astrofixes
in a cloudy sky and becoming surrounded by a sea of red mud, to patching
a bald spot on a pet joey. All were solved by using those two most
necessary ingredients of life in the bush – ingenuity and imagination.
Len Beadell’s descriptions of the countryside, the adventures the team
experienced, and the Australian bush characters they encountered are by
turns illuminating and hilarious. His high-spirited account of the work
that had to be done ‘before they called it Woomera’ makes vivid and
entertaining listening.
