20 Forbidden Places You Can Never Visit

Woomera Test Range, Australia

Woomera Test Range,  Australia

There are few places on Earth more dangerous than this, the world’s largest weapons testing facility, found deep in the Australian outback and strictly off-limits to all but the small number with the required authorisation.

Located north-west of Adelaide, the Woomera Prohibited Area is vast, spanning 127,000 square kilometres, but those planning to explore this barren landscape should think again. The weapons put through their paces here include missiles, drones and rockets, whilst nuclear tests have also been carried out in the past.

Prohibited and protected under Australian law, the authorities take a dim view of anyone who gets too close, although so remote is its location, you’re not likely to stumble upon it by chance. Secretive in the extreme, Woomera (named after an indigenous wooden Australian weapon) is a fascinating place. That said, please take our advice on this one: stay away.
