Long Description:
This is on a rocky headland looking west, over Backstairs Passage, and SW to Kangaroo Island. From the 'parking area' to the fence would be 'Terrain 2', while from there to the Trig would be 'Terrain 2½'. Directly beneath the tripod is a circular bronze Survey Marker: 6526-1051. 'GCA" lists the elevation as 37 metres.

Each of the elongated 'semi-circular' vanes are 'highly' perforated (with x 21 on each vane!), and may have been painted in the past, but are rather corroded now. They are 'double-braced', with two narrow L-shaped metal strips across each vane, with further L-shaped strips bracing to the adjoining vane. The vanes are fixed to a single galvanised pipe (possibly ~35 mm diameter), which is then held, and fixed to the converging three legs of the tripod.

Access: Head out on the dirt Lands End Road, and park in a small pull-over @ S35° 37.141' E138° 5.921'.
