Step back in time to the 1880's when Goulburn was one of the first regional centres to supply piped drinking water to its residents. The Goulburn Historic Waterworks has remained intact with a pumphouse and working steam beam engine. It is located in an idyllic setting on the banks of the Wollondilly River. This rare facility is the only complete, steam powered municipal water supply left in its original location in the Southern Hemisphere. The buildings and engine are of national significance and are now protected by a permanent conservation order. Come and see Goulburn's original 1883 steam beam engine working and steaming like in the old days. Open: 10am-3pm Take a tour of the Pumphouse Museum and historic Waterworks. See the 130 year old Appleby Beam Engine and Hick Hargreaves Corliss Valve Engine under steam. Bring your own for a picnic by the river and the children can play in the playground. Entry is by donation.
