Albany Wind Farm, Albany

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Experience the power of the wind at Albany Wind Farm, a wind power station featuring 18 turbines that produce over 80 percent of Albany’s electricity. The wind farm, with its long boardwalks along the rugged cliffs and panoramic views of the ocean, is a popular stop for travelers from around the world. The site’s turbines are the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, designed to withstand the strongest winds likely in the region, and incorporating special lightning protection. The farm is located at an elevated position, approximately 80 meters (262 ft) above the Southern Ocean, which allows the turbines to exploit the local wind conditions to the maximum.

  • Interesting if you want get up close to a wind turbine. You can stand right at the base of one and get views over the farm. Plenty of interesting information provided.
  • It was incredible to be able to get so close and walk around the base of the huge turbines. The paths and interpretation trail are excellent, and you get an amazing view of the whole farm. Free too - definitely recommend.
  • amazing wind mill spinning non-stop during our stay there. it will be great if this "clean" energy can be made available in all the places in the world as it poses a great sight as well.
  • Interesting place to visit if you are on the way discovering Albany. They have public restrooms and general information area. The walk paths are naturally made so you don't feel you disturbe the nature. There are several points to observe the surrounding area and also see where the ocean is!
  • It's quite suggestive walk along the big Mills. And the beach down there it's beautiful!!
