See one of the biggest water pumps in Western Australia, inside this museum, which is located in Goldfields Water Supply Scheme No.3 Steam Pumping station. The collection contains the original pump from No. 7 pumping station: A huge Worthington Horizontal Duplex Triple Expansion High Duty Pumping Engine. The pumping station originally contained three of these engines, which, together, moved 3 million gallons (13.6 million litres) of water per day. The Museum occupies nearly two acres and includes original items from the pipeline. There are examples of the original locking bar steel pipe and also wood pipe which was used to repair sections of the pipeline during the 1930’s. A full set of original spanners for servicing the Worthington Engines are displayed in the engine room. The Museum also represents the agricultural, rail and local history of the district. Step inside the charming original rail dining carriage. This carriage was used between Perth and Cunderdin, where it was removed from the train for the onward journey to Kalgoorlie. View horse carriages and farming machinery in the large shed next to the original pumping station. There is even a house that shakes, to simulate the 1968 Meckering earthquake.
