Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An extremely short walk from the car park and you have amazing views. Well worth a look. There are also a number of information panels about the power station and its construction, which are truly interesting.

Staying in one of the cabins overnight and parked up at the lookout on our way in. Very informative and great foresight to provide a facility so that we tourists can learn a little about the marvels of the Tasmanian hydroelectric power supply. Excellent signage and technical details that we could understand. Great views from the lookout over the valley below and adjacent hillsides. We then headed back to the two towers that we spotted adjacent the entry road. They are surge towers and protect against pressure overload. Very worthwhile taking the short drive from the highway if not staying at Tarraleah.

Great place to learn about and look down on an early part of Tasmania’s hydro history. Located at the entry to Tarraleah Homestead Accommodation. Parking is great and the documented history on the signs at the site are very informative.

Good spot to stop on the drive to or from the west coast. Worth the quick detour to see the views down to the power station before past it. Make sure to go see the hairy cows nearby! Worth it!

A small car park beside the lodge gives easy flat access to a deck looking out over the hydro pipes, down to the river then back up the other side.

Within Township of Tarraleah - this is well worth the short walk! Good history on plats at site.
Worth a stop. (No public toilets in Town!)

Air as fresh as, lovely and cool (2C).
A sense of isolation and remoteness in the iconic Tasmanian central highlands

Good information at the viewing platform which is a short flat walk from where you park your car. Massive pipelines taking water down to the power station, one had water spraying out of it so I hope it gets fixed.

A very dramatic view of the hydro pipes awaits at this lookout. Easy walking access makes it a must for anyone. Take a peek

When you first travel around this area it’s interesting why all the big pipes and canals everywhere. Once we found out we had to stay at Tarraleah for a night to check it out. Over at the lookout at the top it’s plain to see the extensive hard yakka that these people back in the 1930’s did. What an amazing feat for so long ago. It’s a very interesting place to see some of Tassies history. Well worth a look.
