The large piece of machinery in Barclay Square, opposite the railway station, is known as 'Big Lizzie'. It was invented by Frank Bottrill and built at Richmond in 1914-1915. 'Lizzie' was intended to cart wool from outback stations in the Broken Hill area. Hauling two wagons (each 9.1 metres in length) the machine set off from Melbourne in 1916. It served as a home for the Bottrill family and carried its own fuel and other necessary resources.
Despite scepticism concerning its capacity to navigate the Mallee's sandhills, it reached Mildura without trouble, only to be stopped by the Murray River, which was in flood, and by the unavailability of a punt of sufficient size. Consequently the machine was used at Merbein for carting wheat (one load being 899 bags).
