This water cart has two points of interest on the back. On the left is an information panel and on the right is an opening that lets you look inside.
The panel says:
This water cart was used at the Tasmania Mine to spray the mine year to rest the dust. The driver could operate the release valves with a foot lever.
The draught horse pulling the cart must have been a powerful animal as the tank held amost a tonne (1000kg) of water!

Mountgarrett's Cottage, Woolmers Estate. Constructed for Dr Mountgarrett in the 1820s and later moved to Woolmers, where it was used for agricultural purposes.
I wasn't going to post this one as the photos are poor quality, but because the building hasn't been maintained/restored as a residence, the construction details can be seen.
The cottage consists of two rooms. The main one through the front door, which has had large double doors added at the back to allow access to the machinery, and a smaller room to the side.
Door to second room. Detail from wall below.
Facing the other way. On the right, kitchen wing with servants room above. Entrance to main house under the low roof at the back.
Air-compressed washing machine, Wolter & Etching. More information on these.
Finally a wooden washing machine. I can't find anything more about these. I put more photos of it here.
