Woomera Rocket Rang
"We're looking for someone to start a rocket range - er...or something...." These were the words spoken to Len Beadell in 1947 by Colonel Fitzgerald, Director of the Australian Army Survey Corps. Len accepted the challenge and so began this story of surveying the Woomera Rocket Range and navigating and surviving in the Central Australian outback.
