Tuesday December 04, 2018

NewSpace company Southern Launch will begin developing the infrastructure to deploy nanosatellites from the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia
...
Called the Whalers Way Orbital Launch Complex, the 1190-hectare site sits at the bottom of Eyre Peninsula, about 35 minutes’ drive from the regional centre of Port Lincoln. The complex is 300km northwest of Adelaide and 500km south of Woomera, the historic rocket launch site that is restricted to military use.

I'm a bit late with this, but with the Australian Space Industry Conference only a week away, here's a link to an interview with the CEO of Southern Launch:

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine - however, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are
going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead.

Good history on the background of Southern Launch. They have a Letter of Intent from an Australian company (probably either Gilmour or Black Sky) and have been visiting Europe a lot. Floyd says there are 85 companies that are building new launch vehicles, who will need somewhere to launch.
