Wangi Power Station

A coal fired power station that operated between 1956 and 1986. Once considered the largest in the state, the plant supplied electricity to New South Wales.

Positioned on Lake Macquarie at Wangi Wangi, the power station was officially opened on 7 November 1958 after ten years of construction. Approximately one thousand people lived in the area during this period.

Although the plant was abandoned in 1986 the main building still stands as of May 2018. The future of the site remains uncertain... but there have been proposals for a redevelopment into a residential housing complex.
