Sixty two years after the launch of the Snowy Mountains Scheme by the then Governor-General, Sir William McKell, the current Governor-General, Quentin Bryce, travelled to Adaminaby on Saturday 15 October, 2011, to open the museum that showcases this monumental chapter in Australia''s history.
Exhibits tell the story of the construction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme and what life was like on the Scheme. The collection already consists of significant examples of machines and materials used to build the Snowy Scheme. Exhibits also concentrate on the stories of the Snowy workers and their impact on Australia, especially on modern Australia''s migration program.
The museum also sets out to pay tribute to post-war migration and stand as a memorial to the many Snowy workers who brought so much to the nation.Visit Website
