Cobdogla Irrigation & Steam Museum-Humphrey Pump & Steam Train

04 Jan - 27 Dec 2014

Situated on Park Terrace in Cobdogla, the Museum is well sign posted from the Sturt Highway.

The Home of Australia’s ‘Big Thumper’ Humphrey Pump at the Cobdogla Irrigation & Steam Museum. The world’s only working Humphrey Pump has been caringly restored and is demonstrated along with steam & diesel locomotives, steam traction or ploughing engines, oil engines, tractors and machinery from the early development era of the Irrigation Areas.

The spectacular Humphrey Pump, which is correctly described as a four stroke internal combustion pump, has been likened to a giant water cannon. Each outward stroke (2 per cycle) of the pump dumps some 6 tons of water into the delivery channel for a total of 1.25 million gallons (5,682,500 litres) per hour.
