Daydream Solar Farm is a photovoltaic power station developed by Edify Energy near Collinsville in Queensland, Australia. It uses a single-axis tracking system to follow the sun across the sky. It generates up to 180MW DC[1] and 150MW AC.

Powerlink upgraded its transmission network to connect the Hayman and Daydream solar farms to the grid.[2]

Daydream has a 12-year power purchase agreement to provide electricity to Origin Energy.[3]
