Like many Half-Life mods from way back, Escape From Woomera won't run properly with the Steam version of Half-Life, and the pre-Steam version is no longer available from Valve (There are, however, CD images of the pre-Steam version available from torrent sites.) Here are the installation instructions assuming you have managed to install a pre-Steam version of Half-Life:
1) Go into the newly installed Half-Life directory and Right-click hl.exe, select “Properties” and set the compatibility mode to Windows 2000.
2) Extract EscapeFromWoomera_v084.zip to the root level of the Half-Life directory.
3) Run the game: Go into the EscapeFromWoomera_v084 folder and double click RunEscapeFromWoomera.bat (I suggest creating desktop shortcut for this).
4) In the pause menu (press escape) go into Configuration and change the resolution in the video settings to the highest appropriate setting for the monitor you’re using.
