Information

This Pump Shed is still a functional pumping structure, still in use on Chowilla Station. It is also near this site that Charles Todd set up his temporary observatory to calculate the correct 141st Meridian of Longitude back in 1868. Also you will note the high water marks on the shed showing the height of past flood levels.
