Barron Gorge Hydro

Located in Far North Queensland, at the northernmost end of the state's high voltage electricity grid, Barron Gorge Hydro is a clean, green electricity generator. It also provides regional security of electricity supply by being able to control voltage levels on the transmission system.

In November 2011, a $28 million refurbishment of the Barron Gorge Hydro was completed, extending the power station's life for another 40 years and ensuring Far North Queensland continues to benefit from secure, reliable, environmentally responsible energy.
