Preston River Old Machinery

Whilst the task of overseeing the maintenance and restoration of the Boyanup Foundation Inc’s collection of vintage agricultural machinery may seem daunting, there is nothing that excites this group more than seeing their work come to fruition as an old machine splutters to life after some tender loving care.

Armed with a great store of knowledge, and a love of old machines, the Preston River Old Machinery group relishes the challenge of bringing the old ‘workhorses’ into working order and restoring their exteriors to their former brilliance as well.

Visitors to the SWRHC site on Open Days are often startled by the loud coughs and grunts, not to mention blasts, emitted from these machines as the Preston River Old Machinery Group show off the products of their labour.

The Preston River Old Machinery Group meet weekly and are an active group on our monthly Open Days.
