EcoLogic at the Powerhouse

This model shows how the coastline of Sydney city would change if sea levels rose 10 metres.

10:00am - 5:00pm daily.

EcoLogic has been completely redeveloped to explore one of the world’s hottest topics today: climate change. Discover the science behind global warming and what we can do to prevent it from getting worse. Explore the evidence that humans are causing climate change by burning coal, oil and gas (fossil fuels). An enormous 3D graph shows the highs and lows of carbon dioxide concentrations over the last 400,000 years, with a notable sharp rise in levels in the last 100 years. See a large model of Sydney’s Circular Quay and Opera House under 10 metres of water, illustrating what could happen if there is a temperature increase of just three degrees Celsius. Learn how our precious natural resources – like fresh water – are managed. Through a hands-on interactive iPad game, test your ability to manage a town’s water cycle. Droughts, population growth and burst pipes create chaos amidst the effort to maintain dams, pumps, filtration plants, storm water and sewage systems.
