No 1 Pump Station

The No 1 Pump Station Mundaring stands at the foot of Mundaring Weir and provides an opportunity to explore one of Australia’s most significant industrial heritage sites.

The Goldfields Water Supply Scheme designed by CY O’Connor was originally built to transfer water from the Perth hills to the goldfields of Western Australia, a distance of 560 kilometres. The scheme was opened in 1903.

No 1 Pump Station was the first of eight steam pump stations and an extensive four-year renovation project by the National Trust now makes No 1 Pump Station a showcase for the scheme.

Schools visiting No 1 Pump Station have a wide choice of tours and activities including Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Programs. Students learn about the significant people and events involved with the scheme.

We are pleased to have eftpos facilities available for your convenience.
