Vestas' 420 MW MacArthur farm has been Australia's largest wind farm since January 2013, however, 2017 has brought with it a spate of new projects trumping that record. Now, US wind turbine manufacturer GE has announced that it will build the country's largest wind farm, the 453 MW Cooper's Gap project made up of 123 turbines in the range of 3.6 - 3.8 MW.
