No 1 Pump Station sits in an area known as Minderinjy to the local Whadjuk people at the foot of Mundaring Weir.

No 1 Pump Station was the first of eight steam pump stations constructed as part of the Goldfields Water Supply Scheme, designed by CY O’Connor to transfer water over a distance of 560 km from the Perth Hills to the WA Goldfields to bring precious water to this notoriously dry part of the state.

A visit to No 1 Pump Station offers an opportunity to explore one of Australia’s most significant industrial heritage sites showcasing the Goldfield Water Supply Scheme.
