Hydro Power Plant

Reviewed By 993anitat - Forster, Australia

We dropped into the information centre to find out what there was to do in Thargomindah. Surprisingly, there was heaps. We ended up buying a $12.50pp entry to three historical exhibits around town. There was the Hydro Power Plant, the Old Hospital and the Old Gaol. The Hydro Power Plant was my favourite. Loved the fact that this small town was so very important back in the day coming in third in the world, and just one day behind Paris, to have the lights at night generated by a hydro scheme run from the bore water. The video and hologram information is very cool as well as informative. .

Each area has an electronic display. The ones that were working were very interesting but unfortunately, a couple weren't.

Great ladies, really helpful with our tickets to visit the jail, the hospital and the museum. they even replaced mine when I lost it, without making me feel foolish.

Burke and Wills Tree

Reviewed By ready_travellers

This is an isolated location, on the Nappa Merrie cattle station, and is well worth making a special trip to see. We arrived late in the afternoon, and camped overnight on the banks of Cooper Creek. This is one of the most serene camp sites we have ever stayed - bird life is abundant, yet it is calm and quiet. The $20 entry fee per car pays for improvements and facilities on site. Detailed, informative signage and boardwalks have recently been installed to improve the visitor's experience. There are three trees of note: The Dig Tree - carved in 1862 by Alexander Howitt's Search Party, Brahe's Tree - The 'Real' Dig Tree for Burke and Wills, and the 'Face' Tree - carving of Robert O'Hara Burke. These Coolabah trees are ancient and gnarly - if only they could talk! After spending a couple of hours viewing the trees, we were humbled by both the achievements and failings of the Burke and Wills Expedition.

This was a lovely walk along the river with so many birds to see. There were a couple of places to sit but a few more wouldn't go amiss.
