THE LILY near Albany Western Australia.
The Lily Windmill is an authentic 16th Century design brick "ground-sail" mill. The five story full size Dutch Windmill, with its 22 Ton cap and a sail length of 24.6 meters, is one of the largest traditional windmills ever built in Australia.

The Lily Windmill is the only operational flour producing windmill on mainland Australia.

I was wondering who posted the cool photo from Holland when much to my surprise it was Avril from Australia. A very nice presentation.

When Australiana built this windmill, Avril, they clearly constructed it with great care and attention to detail. The fact that it's a working windmill adds a great back story to its beauty. Love those bricks!

Congratulations on this one. Thanks for entering it on BP, just looked it up, very interesting. Stacey (our daughter) & Shane went to Holland for a week in July to have a look where my family came from & didn't see a Windmill. We'll all have to come over to WA one of thesse days for a look. Good luck with this one.
