Abstract/Summary The WiggleZ Dark Energy survey is currently being carried out using the AAOmega instrument on the AAT. It is measuring redshifts for 240,000 emission line galaxies with high star-formation rates over 1,000 sq. degrees of sky. These galaxies are selected for spectroscopic observation from a combination of optical and ultraviolet imaging. The target selection criterion applied to these datasets is highly optimised to select high redshift emission line galaxies. The redshift distribution of these galaxies peaks at z
