Lucas Heights Nuclear Reactor

Things to do, Educational venues Lucas Heights
Whether you're pro or anti-nuclear, it's important to know how it all works. Lucas Heights houses Australia's only research and medical nuclear reactor, OPAL. There are fascinating two-hour tours hosted by men and women of science. The reactor is submerged in a deep pool of water, which gives it an eerie blue, radioactive glow; this sight alone is worth the rigorous security checks.
