Due to the current COVID situation, school power station tours will be postponed until further notice. Our education team will be in touch with schools that currently have bookings to provide advice.  

School power station tours

Hydro Tasmania operates 30 power stations and more than 50 major dams across Tasmania. 
Tours of our power stations are a great way for students to see how renewable energy is generated in Tasmania.


Your safety while visiting our sites is our priority. We recommend tours for Years 5 and above. Power stations are very noisy places and have many levels accessed by stairs. If you feel your students would not cope with either please let us know.

All visitors must wear a vest, helmet, safety glasses, hearing protection and carry gloves while on site and there are no exceptions. This is provided to you prior to entering the power station.

Please read our power station safety brochure and contact education@hydro.com.au if you have any questions.

Please note that due to operational requirements, tours at short notice cannot be accommodated. We recommend booking your tour at least two months in advance.
