About

The Manapouri Underground Power Station, located deep beneath Fiordland, harnesses the energy of rushing water to generate electricity. The construction was one of New Zealand's greatest engineering achievements, as the majority of the work was completed underground and in a remote location.
The excursion begins with a scenic cruise across beautiful Lake Manapouri. View the displays at the visitor centre, then travel by coach down a 2km spiral tunnel to view the immense underground machine hall and learn the story behind this power station.
- Picnic lunches available (if pre-ordered).
- Te Anau coach connections available.
The Power Station is CLOSED for maintenance & the re-opening date is to be confirmed - next update October 2017.
