John Butters Power Station – Guided Tours

Hydro Tasmania

The water from Lake Burbury drops 200 metres on its journey via tunnels to the John Butters Power Station. Come and experience the station and discover how we turn this water into electricity using a 143 MW Francis turbine. Located on the bank of the picturesque King River, this is a rare opportunity to see inside one of Tasmania's more modern power stations.
