With its’ specially developed ‘interpretation machine’ and a number of informative plaques on display to explain the history and vision of the site, you will be amazed at the stories and controversy surrounding its development.
The building and its 41.5 metre chimney is a fascinating display of late 19th Century architecture, and if you have a passion for historic machines, you will be struck by the genius of a technology that has seen ninety million litres of water pumped daily uninterrupted. You can see three of the original Babcock and Wilcox boilers, the Green’s Economiser and one of the original Worthington triple expansion steam engines.
The No 1 Pump Station is the starting point for The Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail, which offers a range of walk and cycle trails around the weir.
Mundaring Weir is located a short one hour drive from Perth via Kalamunda or Midland.
