Few sights are more Aussie than a wind­mill sil­hou­et­ted against a blaz­ing sun­set. In­creas­ingly, how­ever, these icons of the out­back are be­ing re­placed by so­lar­pow­ered pumps. Now the com­mu­nity of Penong on the Eyre High­way, SA, is de­ter­mined to pre­serve this sym­bol of Aus­tralia’s agri­cul­tural her­itage with a new mu­seum ded­i­cated to con­serv­ing old wind­mills. En­try is free and the mu­seum can be found on the Eyre High­way in the town it­self.
