Russell Place Substation is significant as Melbourne was one of the first places in the world to have a public electricity supply
Check out the amazing boiling mercury vapor DC transformer... May be one if the last such operating pieces of equipment operating, an incredible sight!
See a side of Melbourne you never see, hidden underground, it's pretty cool!
This is a live substation with access via three flights of grate stairs. See the power at Open House 10am to 4pm - Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July 2012 #OHM2012
Go underground to see one of Melbourne's oldest substations at work. Will be open 10am-4pm Saturday July 30 and Sunday July 31 as part of Melbourne Open House 2011
