Cobdogla Irrigation And Steam Museum

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum was originally built as the pumping station for the district’s vineyards and horticultural crops

As a major contribution to South Australia’s Jubilee 150 year, the then Engineering and Water Supply Department, (now SA Water) refurbished one of the world famous Humphrey Pumps and the Pumping Station grounds to form the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum.

On the fully accredited railway, both steam and diesel locomotives pull the train on a 30 minute trip through the museum grounds along the channel and out through the vineyards, while elsewhere in the museum you may see huge steam traction engines, smaller steam engines, stationary IC engines, and special displays at work.

The museum holds five major operating days each year, featuring the Steam Train Traction Engine, Stationary Engines, the National Trust dioramas, and special operating exhibits.

The Humphrey Pump is under repair. Its return to service will be advised on our web and FaceBook sites.
