Historic Survey Cairn

This eight metre high cairn was built in the 1860s as a reference point for land surveys. It is one of only three mortared stone Geodetic Triangulation Cairns in Victoria.

How to get to Historic Survey Cairn

Start at Harbison Picnic Ground, located next to the tea rooms. Then head north along one of the two short walking trails, in 300m from the car park you will reach the survey cairn. Be careful when crossing the road next to the cairn.
