Maintaining heritage values at Port Kembla

Repair and maintenance of heritage-listed items is an important part of the sustainable management of our assets at Port Kembla Heritage Park.

As part of this work, we have repaired and repainted the Mobile Block Setting Steam Crane in 2018 and refurbished the associated original wagons in 2019. The Crane is the last of its kind remaining in NSW and provides a valuable link to the history of port construction in the early 1900s.

Outcome

Great care has been taken in repairing damage, removing rust and repainting. The wagons are being restored using local timber and re-using as much of the original materials as possible.
