One arcanum is that Melbourne has the oldest and only surviving first
generation electronic computer (this excludes the electromechanical Zuse
Z4 in Munich, and reconstructions such as the Colossus at Bletchley Park).

CSIRAC is housed at the Melbourne Museum, but can be a little tricky to
find now; it is tucked away on the lower foyer level.
