The Commission head office was in Coogee, and its main facilities were at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Lucas Heights, established in 1958. Highlights of the Commission's history included: Major roles in the establishment of the IAEA and the system of international safeguards. The construction of the HIFAR and MOATA research reactors at Lucas Heights.
