What else would catch your attention
I have visited quite a number of wind farms over the past couple of years, but this one is a standout. The Lake Bonney Wind Farm is easy to get to with sealed roads all the way, hence no issues whatsoever for any two-wheel-drive vehicle. You also have the opportunity to be fairly up close and personal with the turbines themselves. Indeed great for photos.
The wind farm is near the township of Millicent on the Woakwine Range. It is approximately two kilometres from Lake Bonney and construction completed in 2010. Its 112 turbines generate enough energy to power 110,000 homes each year. The consistently strong winds of the Limestone Coast makes it the perfect location for a wind farm.
So, when you're on a road trip down the southeastern parts of South Australia, be sure to plan in a short detour to witness these huge towers of rotating blades. For some reason, wind farms have always caught my attention, and here's hoping they will catch yours too.
