- High Flux Australian Reactor, a 10 MW DIDO class reactor in Lucas Heights, New South Wales that produced nuclear medicine (approximately half a million doses a year) for the diagnosis and treatment of major diseases such as cancer and heart disease. HIFAR also produced neutron beams for research, particularly neutron diffraction analysis of crystal structures, and irradiation facilities for various purposes especially materials testing and chemical analysis. It first went critical on 26 January 1958, was shut down in January 2007 and is currently under a care and maintenance program.

- RA - Reaktor A (1956–2002) - 6.5 MW heavy water moderated and cooled research reactor
- RB - Reaktor B (1958-...) - At the very beginning the RB reactor was designed and constructed as an unreflected zero power heavy water - natural uranium critical assembly. First criticality was reached in April 1958. Later, the 2% enriched metal uranium fuel and 80% enriched UO2 fuel were obtained and used in the reactor core. Modifications of the reactor control, safety and dosimetry systems (1960, 1976, 1988) converted the RB critical assembly to a flexible heavy water reflected experimental reactor with 1 W nominal power, operable up to 50 W. Several coupled fast-thermal systems were designed and constructed at RB reactor in the early 1990s, for research in fast reactors physics.
