Centennial Park, Weather Station

These streaky clouds are above the Weather Station in Centennial Park. The original weather station was constructed here in 1907 to assist European settlers across Australia to understand and predict the weather. It was used to measure the minimum and maximum temperatures until it was decommissioned in 1975 and dismantled. In 2008, it was reconstructed as a permanent interpretation of the old weather station, housing information panels telling the history.

  4. How bizarre we moderns are. We pay good money to construct a useful site, use it, tear it down, realise our loss 3 decades later, then pay good money to rebuilt the site on another location.

  16. Peter, I had driven or walked past it many times and had no idea what it was. On my recent visit I decided to have a closer look and was pleasantly surprised by its purpose and history.
