Historical photo of the base

Located alongside the wartime Salisbury Explosives factory, Edinburgh was constructed as a support base for weapons development at Woomera. With the reduction in testing activities in the late 1960s, the base later became home to the RAAF's Maritime Patrol Group, as well as No 1 Recruit Training Unit, the Institute of Aviation Medicine and the Aircraft Research and Development Unit.
