Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station

The Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station was built in 1965 to support space missions. It received the video images of man’s first walk on the moon, as well as supported many other space missions.

When it was closed in 1981, the main antenna was moved to Tidbinbilla and the buildings were demolished. Today, only the foundations remain.
