Visit to the Loy Yangs Power station.
During the week you can book a guided tour, I think kids would love it, this one would have like to.
Free BBQ facilities as well at the main site.
Huge electric powered bucketwheel dredgers, 50 metres high and 190 metres long - more than twice the length of a jumbo jet - are used to excavate the open cut mine. The dredgers can dig 4,000 tonnes an hour, or more than one tonne per second. The amount of coal they dig would be enough to bury a house within minutes.
Chimneys are 100 metres high, imagine laying the concrete?
