Snowy Mountains Hydro Discovery Centre

Agri, Mining and Industry Galleries, Museums and Collections Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme is one of the engineering wonders of the modern world. With seven power stations – two of which are underground, 16 major dams, and over 140 kilometres of trans-mountain tunnels, it is a symbol of Australian endeavour at its best.

The Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre is a state of the art visitor facility showcasing the amazing story of the Snowy Mountains Scheme, from the early construction days to the role the Scheme plays today in the development of Australia.

The centre houses a comprehensive exhibition hall that includes a photographic collection, models, exhibits, and interactive displays. The centre also has two theatres, souvenirs, maps, and a cafe.
