Summary
"The Golden Pipeline is an Australian story of gold, water and the development of a remote and harsh, but beautiful land. Take a trip along the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail and experience a journey through a fascinating time capsule of natual and cultural heritage. Wonder at the basic lifestyle of an old prospector, visit a modern mining operation, enjoy the open road and panoramic vistas, explore the beauty of a giant rock outcrop and see how it was adapted to gather water for a pioneering railway, walk into an old steam pump station and marvel at the innovation of nineteenth century engineering which built the world;s longest fresh water pipeline. It is still in operation today using the latest technology to provide water to farmlands and the gold city of Kalgoorlie. Learn something about Aboriginal values and kinship associated with the land. Understand the hardships faced as they were displaced by European settlement, particularly mining and farming. Discover the impact that World War II had even in this remote part of the globe."--Back cover
