Description

In the Jarrahdale museum there are local artefacts, family history, photographs, oral history recordings, DVDs, books and other items that will remind you of our past. Let the children try out our morse code equipment, draw on the blackboard and search for the secretive mice.

Built in 1896, the Old Post Office was the centre of activity for a growing community. Some 20 years after the timber industry began, there were many families living in the town, on nearby farms and orchards and they were anxious for news from their loved ones back home. In an era long before the advent of internet and mobile phones, they could communicate only by letter or telegram. The Post Office was critical to the town’s survival.

The timber industry gradually declined, bauxite mining arrived and the two industries co-existed for several decades. New facilities were built in the town and the old Post Office fell into disuse. In the early 1990s, local residents fought to save the building and so, Jarrahdale Heritage Society was formed. With support from the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale and local businesses, it was restored to its former glory. In 1997, Jarrahdale was classified as an Historic Town.

The Old Post Office is now home to the Jarrahdale museum and, some people believe they can feel the ghostly presence of an early postmistress still residing there!!

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.
