Jindabyne to Woolongong – I stopped at the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre at Cooma, here they give you an overview of an amazing engineering project that was constructed between 1949 and 1974 and is currently undergoing an expansion. It consists of a series of lakes at various levels that feed water through tunnels to Hydro Electric Power Stations. During times of low power demand the turbines can be reversed and used to pump water back up to the lakes which then act as a storage battery and the water is released to provide power at peak times. The scheme also encompasses solar and wind power farms. It is free and there are 2 films.
When I visited Port Adelaide to see the street murals I became aware of the Wonder Walls Festival which started in Woolongong and this is the reason I am here. Port Kembla also has some murals. Let the walls do the talking.
“The Wonderwalls exhibition explores the various artistic styles, techniques and processes practised by self taught artists from various urban environments and sub-culture backgrounds.”
