Did you know that this region is home to most of Victoria’s power generation facilities? See them for yourself by taking a short drive to the Loy Yang Power Complex and open-cut coal mine. The Hyland Highway actually passes right through the complex; there are even a handful of visitor lookouts so that you can stop to take a closer look. The power station’s chimneys are 260 metres tall, which is roughly the same height as the Rialto Tower in Melbourne.
