In May 2008 Yarloop Workshops formed a maintenance partnership with Fairbridge Farm to allow skilled heritage restoration workers to carry our work on our site. Fairbridge Farm trained them under their Indigenous Apprenticeship Training Scheme. The first job undertaken by them, the replacement of a long valley gutter and downpipes has been completed.

Harvey Shire have agreed to allow our planned major maintenance programme for 2008/9 which will allow us to seek matching funding for major maintenance projects such as drainage.

The Conservation Plan for the Yarloop Workshops has been completed by Palassis Architects. A priority will be the restoration of Caldwell’s Cottage. (the caretakers cottage).

A proposal has been put forward for a South West Industrial Heritage Trail. The proposal has been published as a report titled, "Working Life", and is published by the South West Development Commission. Email

The Report states that, "the Yarloop Workshops are perfectly placed to be the northern gateway to the South West Industrial Heritage Trail."

Furthermore: "This complex..... represents a unique example of a complete timber milling workshop in Western Australia (and possibly Australia)."
