Woomera Prohibited Area Coordination Office


The Woomera Prohibited Area Coordination Office is a joint Australian Government—South Australian Government office established to administer non-Defence use of the Woomera Prohibited Area.

The Woomera Prohibited Area (WPA) is a globally unique military testing range covering nearly 124,000 square kilometres in north-west South Australia.

The WPA is an important Defence capability and testing and evaluation asset that plays a significant role in Australia’s national security.

The WPA is also highly prospective and the South Australian Government estimates that more than $35 billion in developments could be possible over the next decade.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact the WPA Coordination Office.
