Goulburn Historic Waterworks


Sun 8 Jun 2014, 10:00am–3:00pm

Where: Goulburn HIstoric Waterworks, Marsden Weir Fitzroy Street, Goulburn NSW, Goulburn, Southern Tablelands

Restrictions: All Ages

Listed by: museums

Experience the age of steam with two fully operational 1800s stationary steam engines. The 1883 Appleby Bros of London beam engine was installed at the Waterworks to supply the residents of Goulburn with their first piped water supply. Our second engine is the Hick Hargreaves corliss valve engine build in 1866 and used at the Bells Creek gold mine near Araluan, NSW.

The pumphouse building and beam are the only complete, operational, steam powered municipal water supply, left in its original location, in the Southern Hemisphere. The site is listed on the State Heritage Register, the National Trust of Australia's register and is protected by a permanent conservation order.

Set in a idyllic location on the banks of the Wollondilly River the grounds also have a BBQ and picnic area. Playground and Pumphouse Cafe offered locally made food.

Model steam engines, vintage car and farm machinery display!
