WADDAMANA- Tasmania's first major hydro station.
FORMALLY theWaddamana Field Study Centre
This Waddamana property, Lot 2, is set on 17.8 hectares (approximately 44 acres) in the centre of Waddamana, with the famous historic Hydro Power Station Museum across the road.
This historic village is fully serviced with its own sewerage, water and power connection and was built for the engineers constructing the Power Station. Waddamana is the site of Hydro Tasmania's first hydro power station. After a hard life of generating renewable energy, the station was put into retirement. The Waddamana power station now has a new life as a museum filled with original equipment and other displays.
The homes range from 1917 to the early 1950's and in 1916 power generation began.
Waddamana is located in the southern central highlands of Tasmania, a remote and un-inviting part of the state, both in the early 20th century and today, but the serenity and the abundance of wildlife can be seen to be a factor in this pristine part of the world.
