The Golden Pipeline brings Western Australian history to life, taking visitors on a journey along the Goldfields Water Supply Scheme (GWSS), a pipeline that transports water from Perth to Kalgoorlie (560 km, or 348 miles to the east). From the main page, visitors can choose to begin either by learning about the history of the scheme or by exploring an interactive map with both visual and textual elements to help users understand the importance of the GWSS. As visitors "travel" along the trail, they find opportunities to learn more about local sites and see photos of the pipeline traversing the land. Visitors can navigate using a menu on the left-hand side with tabs for sections such as The People (with information on various individuals and ethnic groups impacted by the GWSS), Water and Land, and Education Resources. Despite the section name, the Education Resources materials are not just for teachers, because the section also includes a collection of brochures curated by the Golden Pipeline to help visitors grasp the politics, history, and future of this engineering marvel. This site is a project of the National Trust of Western Australia.
