  • The first hydro-electric power station in Australia and one of the first large scale in the world. Once the first stage of Waddamana was up and running in 1916, it changed the fate of Tasmania...

  • A brilliant museum and site to visit. We had a fantastic and informative intro from Ian then explored the rooms and displays. The section on the village and life in the past was really interesting. Great to get up close with the old generator equipment in the main hall. It’s worth the drive and views on the road in and out as well.
  • What an amazing place, we were met at the door by Ian , one of the knowledgeable volunteers who gave us a great introduction to the Power Station. The explanations and displays were fantastic . Absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it. Another superb part of Tasmanian history
