Carrying a very big transformer that will be used to power the Stockyard Hill wind farm, the massive vehicle measured 115 metres long, 5.2 metres wide and was 5.5 metres high. It was hauled by five prime movers and travelled at an average speed of around 15 - 20 km/h.

Over a thousand people, stayed up late in Geelong to see it, while thousands visited the parked superload at Waurn Ponds where it parked on the second day. 

On the third morning, over 150 locals cheered as the superload rolled into Beeac to park. Visitors from as far away as Warrnambool took the chance to come and see the spectacle, which proved a boon for the local community and businesses. 

Many turned to social media on the last night of the journey to keep track of where it was. By 2:00am, 200 Cobden locals left their beds and turned out to watch it make a difficult turn towards Camperdown and by 3:45am over 300 people watched it moved through Camperdown.

This complex and dynamic operation was months in the planning, to ensure the roads it travelled on could take its humungous weight, often needing to avoid major highways.  

With lots of work beforehand, during the trip the superload travelled with a big convoy of support vehicles with one crew travelling ahead of the load, checking and removing over 200 pieces of roadside furniture, laying steel plates over bridges and raising powerlines to enable safe passage. 

After four nights, countless adventures and some wow moments, the superload made it to Haunted Gully, where it will soon be pressed into service to support the generation of renewable energy for decades to come.
