This paper looks at long term directions in the Australian weather radar network. It starts with a brief description of the network's history, from its origins as an upper air wind finding network, through to the extensive and sophisticated network we have today. It considers a number of challenges currently being addressed, including management of competing user requirements, and concludes with a synopsis of a current review of the radar network, which is aimed at improving radar coverage in Australia.
