Whalers Way Orbital Launch Complex
Located on the tip of the Eyre Peninsula, the Whalers Way Orbital Launch Complex is a dedicated commercial rocket launch site that became operational in 2020.
Covering 1200 hectares, the site is the only commercial, multi-user site that offers proximity to established industry infrastructure that can support rocket launches, good year-round weather and unhindered southward launch trajectories across unpopulated areas with low density air and nautical traffic lanes.
With plans to facilitate the launch infrastructure needed for rocket and satellite manufacturers to launch their rockets within 48 hours’ notice, the site will usher in the new paradigm for Just-In-Time space access.
The site is located 680km from Adelaide, and a short 32km from the major township of Port Lincoln.
