The Water Tower
When the eastern railway reached Merredin in 1893 this tower was built to provide water for the steam
engines then in use. Water was pumped from the dam at Merredin Peak into the tower, which has a
capacity of 40,000 gallons.
On the tank's sides can be seen the advertisements for Kalgoorlie Bitter and Oatmeal Stout , produced
in the Merredin Brewery in 1928.
