Welcome to the informational hub for the Wallarah 2 Coal Project, a proposed underground mining operation northwest of central Wyong on the Central Coast of New South Wales and approximately 45 km southwest of Newcastle.
This project was approved in January 2018 and is set to provide extensive economic and social benefits to Wyong, the wider Central Coast Region and NSW communities through job creation and business opportunities. The Central Coast Water Assessment summary at left outlines the outcomes of various comprehensive reviews of the Wallarah 2 Coal Project leading to its approval. Further details of the planning application, assessment documents and approval are available on this website.

The graph below will describe what the fuel mix is that supplies the electricity consumed in Australia’s two main grids, and how this changes over time. You might be interested how it changes day by day and day -v- night.
It shows both Supply and Demand for the two main electricity grids that cover the vast majority of Australian electricity consumption and an instantaneous rate of production and consumption (i.e. MWh per hour – or simply MW).
