History at its best in the heart of Mundaring Weir. The whole area is really lovely especially in Winter, give you the history of C Y O'connor and trial and tribulations of building a Water pipeline 600 odd Kms to the Goldfields - Kalgoorlie

WA does tourism so well, as illustrated by this large tourism trail. Well signposted for 70% of sites, informative interp' panels, genuine historical sites chosen and it all links well together

Only in WA is something like this promoted so heavily! Its a water pipeline! I popped in to a few sites along the Great Eastern Hwy to see if I wasn't just missing why this is a tourist attraction. Obviously I kept missing it and missing it...

What a great way to see engineering heritage and now history.
