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.
