100 Years of Hydro


100 Years of Hydro is an exhibition that tells the story of the past one hundred years, from construction of the first power station, Waddamana, to the novel technologies being used today.
Through the electricity generated by hydropower, the state's manufacturing and agriculture industries have flourished; Hydro people built roads and created villages where none previously existed; the migrant workforce recruited to work on power schemes shaped Tasmania's culture; and our engineering and technological breakthroughs have changed the way the world approaches the challenge of generating energy.
Housed largely within a 40-foot custom-designed container as well as external industrial frames, this dynamic, audio-visual exhibition portrays the past, present and possible future of the Hydro.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to see historical photos and artefacts, learn about Tasmania's world famous hydropower system, and discover the fascinating stories of the people who built the business.

Wall in the Wilderness - The


The Wall In The Wilderness is situated at Derwent Bridge in Tasmania's Central Highlands. It is Australia's most ambitious art project undertaken in recent years. By 2015 creator/designer, Greg Duncan plans to carve the history of the highlands in 100 metres of timber, most of which will be in our rare Huon Pine.
The beautifully carved works set out in relief sculpture depict the history, hardship and perseverance of the people in the Central Highlands and pay homage to the individuals who settled and protected the area.
Duncan is already known for the uncanny realism he brings to his work and his pieces are sought after by collectors around the world. Each metre of the panels, including horses, thylacines and foresters represents a month's work.
There is nothing like this anywhere else in Australia. The Wall is a world-class experience.

The area around Lake St Clair offers a wealth of walks, ranging from leisurely 45 minutes strolls to overnight bushwalks, as well as beautiful forests to explore. Lake St Clair is also the end point of the famous Overland Track, which runs from Cradle Mountain in the north to Cynthia Bay on the southern shore of Lake St Clair. Try fishing, boating or the ferry service travelling the 18 kilometre length of the lake, and meet bushwalkers completing the Overland Track.
