The Solar Radio Astronomy Group within the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation's Division of Radiophysics established an international reputation for solar research by the early 1960s. This paper examines some of the reasons for this success under four main headings: (1) Serendipity and timing; (2) Innovative design; (3) Support and funding; (4) Early outstanding scientific results. The achievements are compared chronologically with other significant contributions from elsewhere.
