Long Description:
You may be heading this way to find an older geocache, so why not bring your camera and get a 'Three-for-one'. You will need to park your car at the car park, and then walk along the northern side of the spit on the beach to the marked trailhead where the rocks start. It is then a half kilometre hike on up a rugged, unformed and steep track, to find this trig, which is a white-painted steel post with a mounting plate on top. The views could be better, as it is mostly overgrown, but there is still a good view south to the Port Stephens Lighthouse (still waiting to get THERE, to make it into a Trig on Waymarking).
Looking east you can see Cabbage Tree Island, a piece of National Park that is 'out of bounds'.

On GCA this is rated as Terrain 3.5, so be prepared with decent shoes.

FIRST visited, late at night, or early in the morning, before heading to Darwin in 2012 for a Theatre Nurses Conference. But unfortunately my camera was stolen just as I was preparing to leave to come back home.
