THE GOLDEN PIPELINE

In the 1890s CY O’Connor engineered a pipeline to carry freshwater from Mundaring Weir to arid goldfields 560 km to the east. To commemorate this incredible feat the National Trust of Australia (WA) initiated The Golden Pipeline Project.

Visit a 100-year-old steam pumping station, take a walk across a dam wall, explore the lives of the people who built and maintained this scheme at a variety of museums or drive 650 km to discover more about the pipeline that delivers water to Western Australia’s arid interior.

If you are planning a school or group tour along The Golden Pipeline from Perth to Kalgoorlie or vice versa, contact the National Trust to discuss resources and education links to the WA Curriculum along the way.
Teaching resources are available.

The National Trust has Golden Pipeline resources available through The Le@rning Federation project that are especially suited for upper primary and secondary aged student research.
