The Mundaring Weir has an important history, including the tragic story of CY O'Connor, the engineer who took his own life because he thought that the pipe he built to send water to the gold fields was a failure. What CY O'Connor did not take into account was the time it would take the water to get to Kalgoorlie about 600 km away, so when they activated the pipe, nothing happened for days, and unfortunately, CY took his life before the water came out the other end. Those who like photography will find in this area a pleasure for some spectacular shots.
