Thargomindah was the first town to have reticulated Artesian Bore water. The bore was the source of energy for Australia's first hydro-electric scheme when in 1893 Thargomindah's streets were lit by means of a generator coupled to a water turbine driven by the bore's natural water pressure. They are third in the world to Paris and London to have street lighting generated by Hydro Power! For visitors to Thargomindah a working display is provided at 4.30 p.m. each day.
