Tour Update 13/03/2020:
We enjoy these tours immensely and look forward to taking members of the public up close to our wind turbines and solar panels. However, in the light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we have decided to exercise caution and cancel the public tour to the wind and solar farm next week and in April. We are committed to providing a safe environment for our staff and visitors to our wind and solar farm, which is why this decision has been made. We hope to run the tours again later in the year.
The new tour dates will be announced on our website here and the Crookwell Visitor Information Centre booking site here.
