Valuable Steinway baby grand piano found in 'tropical hell of Broome tip' A clean-up at a resort in northern Western Australia has ended on a sour note when a baby grand piano was mistakenly turfed at a rubbish tip.

Fortunately the historic Steinway & Sons piano previously owned by Lord Alistair McAlpine, an advisor to former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher was saved from destruction by an eagled-eyed local musician.

Steinway pianos cost up to $80,000 new and $20,000 second-hand.

Musician Wil Thomas said he was "shocked and stupefied" when he took his garden waste to the dump on Sunday and found 16-year-old Tui Warihana playing the baby grand piano.
