After a quick safety briefing at the Visitor Centre, you will be kitted out in safety gear (PPE) before we board the tour bus to begin a truly sensory ‘steelmaking’ experience. As the tour bus snakes around the Port Kembla Steelworks site, you will spot everything from monster machinery, giant buildings, locomotives and huge stockpiles of raw materials.
Time to turn up the heat as we climb the stairs to visit the colossal Basic Oxygen Steelmaking (BOS) plant and the continuous slab caster to get the best vantage point of steel production – a truly unique and sensory experience.
In the tour’s final stage, we visit the Hot Strip Mill, where steel slabs are reheated and rolled into coils in a noisy, action-packed process.
Public Steelworks Tours are scheduled every Friday and Saturday morning at 9:30 am.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
