Gullen Range Wind Farm will hold a Community Open Day from 11am to 3pm on Sunday, 16th October, which will align with the Clean Energy Council’s Australia wide wind farm open day. The Open day will be a great opportunity for the community to visit the largest operating wind farm in New South Wales.
Come and see how a wind farm operates, experience what it’s like to get up close to a wind turbine and find out more about wind energy at our Open day.
The family friendly event will feature:
- A mini-bus tour of the wind farm
- Children’s activities: facepainting, competitions and craft
- Information displays about the wind farm in the marquee
- Crookwell Lion’s Club BBQ
- Crookwell Public School Refreshments Stall
- Ice cream van
We are also running a colouring-in competition for pre-schoolers, infants (K-2) and primary (3-6). Taking part is easy! The sheet will be available at the Open day and you can also download it here.
