South Australia's MARALINGA

Maralinga Tours - an insight into our hidden past

Learn about a very, very dark chapter in Australia’s history. One Tree, Marcoo, Kite, Breakaway, Tadje, Biak and Taranaki: innocuous sounding names that in the 1950's provided headlines in the British and Australian press that heralded a growing capacity for Britain to offer a nuclear deterrent to the perceived threat of the Cold War.  Maralinga Tours will give you an amazing insight into this dubious period of Australia's History.

It was on my bucket list and didn’t disappoint. Thanks.


We found that the tour very informative and enjoyable. Priscilla was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. We will definitely recommend the tour to our friends. Facilities were excellent and the cleanest long drop toilets I've ever seen! Well done. Only suggestion I have is that the video's that we could have watched in the Museum perhaps could be sold to the public. Thanks again
