This weekend we visited Mundaring Weir and No. 1 Pumping Station. The weir is actually a water catchment dam (an Australian dam being a pond?????). We took a short bushwalk to get to the viewpoint overlooking the lake and dam.
At the pump house we found the old steam pumps which have now been replaced by electricity. The children had a go at pumping the water along the model of the World's longest water pipe.
