Discover Tasmania Tours - Trevallyn Hydroelectric Power Station and Duck Reach Power Station and Museum

Power Station
Visit the operational Trevallyn power station and Duck Reach power station museum right in the heart of Launceston. Trevallyn Power Station is located only five kilometres from the centre of Launceston and was commissioned in 1955. Trevallyn is a run-of-river station making use of daily flows down the South Esk River and generates around 100 MW of power. Duck Reach Power Station was the first publicly owned hydro-electric plant in the Southern Hemisphere, and provided the Tasmanian city of Launceston with hydro-electric power from its construction in 1895 to its closure in 1955.
