Victoria Valley: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Waddamana Power Station Heritage Site


The Waddamana Power Station, located almost in the geographical centre of Tasmania, provides a unique look at the history and development of hydropower in Tasmania.
You can tour through the turbine hall, with hands-on exposure to the mighty pelton wheel turbines that first began generating electricity over a century ago.
The original machinery at Waddamana has been faithfully restored, along with some of the equipment from the old Shannon Power Scheme. And historical photographs and memories give an insight into what life was like in the early days of this small but social village deep in the Central Highlands.
Tours can be booked for groups of ten people or more.
Open daily 10am to 4pm (closed Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day).

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.
