We broke the World Record

1 out of 400. Not bad at all, however this is not the record. This was the number of us who gathered at the Perth Observatory.

An hour and some few minutes’ drive, east of Perth is Mundaring Weir. To many Western Australian, Mundaring Weir is a significant landmark in the state. It was here that a remarkable feat of engineering was conceived and executed by C.Y. O’Connor. To date, this work that is nearly a century old still hold its record in the annals of Engineering. Read More...
