Upon doing some investigation, this appears to be the Australian CSIRAC computer, made in 1949.  This thing consumed 30 kilowatts of power (in comparison, your home computer consumes about 65 to 250 watts).

Note that CSIRAC is not functional at this time, as it would require repairs that would detract from it’s its authenticity.
