South Burnett Energy Centre

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The South Burnett Energy Centre reflects the past, the people and the energy technology that developed the region and continues to mould their future. The visually exciting displays are located in a building formerly owned by Tarong Coal and incorporate a number of time lines and interactive displays as well as the original engines that supplied energy to Nanango for the first time in 1933.

Come along to experience and discover the history of power generation in the South Burnett…

Power up your very own virtual power station. Peddle a bike to generate all forms of energy with the ultimate result of a “gobstopper”. Ponder over the original working motors which provided the first reticulated power to Nanango in 1933.
