Eyre Bird Observatory - The 'museum verandah' at the restored limestone Telegraph Station building, Eyre, Western Australia
The 'museum verandah' at the restored limestone Telegraph Station building that houses the Eyre Bird Observatory, Eyre, Western Australia. There are several rooms dedicated to museum collections at the Observatory. More durable items are on display on the 'front' verandah. there are collections of whale and other bones, a complete turtle skeleton, telegraph line items, etc. More fragile items are in a museum room in the first door on the right, and more still in the central passageway in the second door on the right.

One of the two main rainwater tanks can be seen at the end of the verandah. There is also an underground cistern which is quite large, but has a persistent leak which has defied attempts to fix it. These rainwater tanks were the first things to be repaired when restoration began so that people could live there. April 2014
