The Rocks, chimney

This octagonal chimney stack rises above the former electricity power station, mining museum and chemical laboratory, located between George Street and Hickson Road at The Rocks. This heritage listed building was designed by the Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon in the Federation Warehouse style with Romanesque and Art Nouveau detailing. The electricity power station and workshops were constructed by 1902 with the mining museum chemical laboratories and chimney constructed by 1909. It became known as the Earth Exchange in 1990 but then became office space in 1996.
