In 1916 electricity generated by harnessing the power of falling water ” hydro-electricity”, first came to Hobart from Waddamana Power Station.
Tours can be booked for groups of 10 people or more.
Accommodation is available at the Waddamana Field Study Centre, which is the original village built to accommodate workers who constructed Waddamana.
