Could be enhanced, but still good.

The old power station was open on our visit to the area, it had some interesting signs about past floods and the swinging bridge being swept away. Great to have a look inside with name plates with a small bit of history. The old flying fox mechanism is still there too.

Not much there to see

We were led to believe there was a museum there and you could get inside - built it was all closed and the bridge across was not accessible. Pity .

How Launceston led the way
wrz 2020 • Pary
An interesting place to visit. Drove to site in Corin Street and a few steps down (and back up) to the suspension bridge that still had one side the original arch. Good interpretation including video. Amazing how they did all this at the time. Drilled through dolerite rock from each end and only out by less than an inch. These days engineers are assisted with gps and mechanical aids! No wonder a street is named after him! A must see for those interested in the past.

Gorge Bushwalk to Duck Reach
gru 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Nice Bushwalk from Launceston on well-maintained trails with several lookouts, then across the suspension bridge to the power station. Inside the power station there is a 10 minute video explaining the history of Australia's first hydro-electric power station, plus some original equipment. Bring food and water as none available at Duck Reach. A great free day trip from Launceston on foot.

The first hydro-electric power station in Australia
lis 2019
An amazing place, but you need to be reasonably fit to enjoy this attraction. Drive there don't bother with walking the Gorge track to get to it. This plant was started in the late 1800's and completed in early 1900's. The engineering speaks for it self, and you stand in awe just how smart our our people were back then and how hard everyone worked to get the job done. The site has a large TV presentation on the history of the power station and the floods that ravaged it in 1929 and the best part of of Launceston. All the breweries went bust except for Boags. Take a camera and walk up the other side of the ravine.

Restored Hydro-electric Plant
lis 2019
It’s located beside the South Esk River above the Cataract Gorge. We saw a few people visiting the information centre down below on the other side of the valley and climbing up the steps. But as we were not fit for walking steep mountains, we viewed it from the roadside where the remnants of the old flying fox was and read the information.

Be adventurous! Add a walk to this old power station to your gorge visit

Either walk upstream for the Gorge first basin, or drive to the nearby carpark and cross the suspension bridge.

Worth the walk

Walked from the suspension bridge to Duck Reach power station but make sure you’re wearing appropriate footwear and for those of average fitness take your time. Parts of the trail are harder than others.

A beautiful piece of history
lut 2019 • Znajomi
Such a beautiful piece of history tucked away just outside the centre o Launceston. A very steep walk down to the power station Museum but if you can do it take the time. You really see the beauty of it all and how hard it must have been to build Very worth a visit

Informative
lut 2019 • Pary
Take a challenge and walk to the Power Station via the Gorge - you won’t be disappointed- Walk is a challenge and the interactive display in the museum was a pleasant surprise. The exhibits including the informations displays were very informative. Part of this venture is the crossing of the magnificent sway bridge. Starting at the basin in Cataract Gorge give yourself 90 minutes plus to complete a rewarding visit.
