Things to do with kids that involve both a wow factor, a little history and a little education are a great opportunity to jump out and stretch your legs when travelling. The added bonus of a unique photo is also a win.
A little while ago I blogged about small windmills but today I want to introduce you to a big boy called Bruce.
Bruce is a comet windmill and he is the largest comet windmill in Australia with a fan size of 10.67 metres. He can draw over a million litres of water per day from a depth of upto 152 metres.
Bruce was built in 1932 and was owned by the commonwealth railways until 1977 when he was bought by a station, where he worked until 2003 when his fan was destroyed in strong winds.
He was restored in 2016 and placed in a windmill museum in Penong, South Australia.
Be sure to call in and say “hi” to Bruce for me, if you’re ever over that way. Tell him Tookii sent you 😉
And that ticks off another one of our BIGS!
