Golden Pipeline Trail
In the 1890s, CY O'Connor engineered a pipeline to carry freshwater from Mundaring Weir to the arid goldfields 560km to the east. To commemorate this incredible feat, the National Trust of Australia (WA) initiated the Golden Pipeline Project. This trail takes motorists from Perth to Kalgoorlie, following the path of the water from Mundaring Weir to Mount Charlotte Reservoir.

The Gunbarrel Highway (approx. 830km) was explored and surveyed by Len Beadell, with the last section completed in 1958. It was the first east-west road to go across the centre of Australia. Experience this incredible piece of history.
