Discussion: 70th Anniversary of the Snowy Hydro Scheme
Fri 18 October 2019 | 2.30pm | 120mins | Free
Seventy years ago workers broke ground on the largest infrastructure project in Australia's history, the Snowy Hydro Electric Scheme - and one of the greatest engineering wonders of the modern world. To celebrate this occasion, Parliament House will host a screening of the short film 'Power From the Snow (1955)' and display striking images by photographer Wolfgang Sievers, of the construction work. This will be followed by a discussion led by journalist Louise Maher about the Snowy Hydro, looking at the people who worked on it, their memories and the remarkable engineering feat itself.
