Pearn’s Steamworld Annual Steam Spectacular Weekend
October 31, 2015 @ 10:00 am - November 2, 2015 @ 4:00 pm UTC+10$10
A Tasmanian institution, the Pearn family agricultural contracting business operated for more than 80 years in the Westbury district, Northern Tasmania. In the 1950’s, the Pearns recognised the passing of the steam era and began to assemble a fabulous collection of engines, tractors, equipment and memorabilia that represent a bygone, but important era of steam powered farming equipment in Tamsnia and Australia. Today, Pearn’s Steam World collection of more than 200 major items receives praise from worldwide visitors and is widely regarded as the best in the Southern hemisphere.
Since its establishment in the 1980s, the museum has been run by volunteers and family members dedicated to the preservation and restoration of this important historical collection.
