Discover the smelly side of Melbourne's history.

Located on the Yarra River at the back of Scienceworks, the Pumping Station is opened for guided and self-guided tours daily.

Hear some stinky stories from the straining well, explore the magnificent engine room and discover a wartime air-raid shelter as you marvel at the engineering feat that helped overcome the stench of 19th century Melbourne.
