Several of the sites with radiation symbols are agency offices and proposed sites that were never used:




  • Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency
  • Australian Safeguards and Non-proliferation Office
  • Jervis Bay – proposed nuclear power reactor site 1969-71
  • Barndioota - proposed Nuclear Waste Dump Site
  • Woomera – proposed nuclear dump site 1998-2004
