A magnificent building completed around 1918, it originally housed engineers and managers building the irrigation scheme. In an age where we are all looking for something different, and prepared to pay for it, the Hydro offers ambience and nostalgia. It needs a lot of money spent on its refurbishment that isn't being spent and my observation of management is that it is slack and unmotivated.
The gardens have great potential at low cost to allure visitors but are scruffy. The shire council has done a great job in beautifying the township. Management at the Hydo should pull its weight. Tourists will come and spend money - especially the aby boomers.
The large murals painted on the bar wall is very much worth a visit. They depict scenes from Leeton's history.
