The Ballaarat Engine is fondly remembered by many locals as a place to clamber and play. It has recently been renovated by volunteers through a grant from Lotterywest. Lots of people ask about where the Ballaarat Engine is so while it is not finished at the time of writing, people should be assured that it is still around and being looked after!
On completion, the Ballaarat Engine will be located at Railway House, down near Busselton's foreshore and the Jetty Precinct.
