Things to do - Power station tours

Power station open days

See the clean energy revolution up close!

Join us for a guided power station tour and see how we use water to make energy.

For more than 100 years we’ve been harnessing natural energy to power Tasmanian households and businesses.

In 2019 we invited you to join us on a free tour of Devils Gate Power Station and Tarraleah Power Station.

Our experts, with years of (collective) experience, were on-hand during the day to guide you through our power stations and answer your questions. Thank you to everyone who came along.

Missed the open day program?

While we are unable to open all of our power stations all year round, there are a number of opportunities for you to see what we do.

Historical Waddamana – See the heart of hydropower heritage when you visit our first power station – Waddamana Power Station. The heritage site is free to visit and open seven days a week (excluding Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day).

Touring Trevallyn – Discover Tasmania Tours provide the opportunity to visit the (operating) Trevallyn Power Station. Located a convenient five minutes from the Launceston CBD, this is a must see on your next visit to the state’s north. Bookings are essential.

Meander at Lake Margaret – A Lake Margaret Power Station tour with RoamWild provides you with a unique opportunity to witness a piece of Tasmania’s industrial heritage at work. Lake Margaret Power Station is located on the picturesque west coast, just outside Queenstown. Bookings are essential.
