Description

Psyche Bend Pump Station was built in 1891 by the Chaffey brothers to meet the needs of the irrigation settlement. The Chaffey steam engine and pumps at Psyche Bend operated successfully until 1959, when electric pumps were installed nearby and the pumping station decommissioned. The original pump house still stands today but the above-ground assets, including two boiler houses, were moved and the boilers sold for scrap. Camping is available along the Murray River.
