This station is where Chaffey set up his system to supply irrigation and drainage over 115 years ago. (The modern pumps are electric now and have been placed a bit further up the river.) You can walk around the old centrifugal pumps and Chaffey’s triple-expansion steam-engine pump. The station is within Kings Billabong , a pretty nature reserve on the Murray floodplain about 8km southeast of the town centre.
