Mcalister: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Crookwell Wind Farm


The Crookwell Wind Farm is located five minutes drive from the heart of Crookwell township. The wind farm consists of eight wind turbines, and was the first grid connected wind farm in Australia when built by Pacific Power in 1998. They are only 45 metres high. Improvements in technology means the newer turbines are 145 metres high, making these look very small.

Stop at the viewing area where the information boards will tell you more about this remarkable example of renewable energy

Crookwell Wind Farm currently supplies electricity to Country Energy's Green Power customers. If you look 10 kilometres further ahead into the valley, you will see more turbines which are over 175 metres high, in comparison to the Crookwell Wind Farm turbine's height of 45 metres.

A Horticultural Society has also been formed by another group and became incorporated. The name changed to the AP and H Society in 1902.
