Bunnerong Power Station, now demolished, was a coal-powered electric power station in the south-eastern Sydney suburb of Matraville, New South Wales, Australia. When the last generating units were commissioned, it was the largest power station in the southern hemisphere, with a capacity of 375 megawatts (MW) from eleven turbo-alternators. It was able to supply up to one third of the state’s electricity needs at the time. It remained the most powerful until the completion of Vales Point Power Station, Lake Macquarie, NSW, in 1966.
