Lake Margaret Hydropower
By the early 1900's The Mt Lyell Mining & Railway Co furnaces had consumed the local forests. No coal was found and an energy solution was needed. The Mt Lyell company took waterpower to a new level and built a Hydroelectric power scheme and village where generations would thrive.
Lake Margaret and the Yolande river with woodstave pipes and 1914 pelton wheel turbines still roar today. Book with us to visit the Lake Margaret Hydropower site. Learn of toils and a unique way of life.
