g’day looking for Peach Tree Trig… it was located in the Royal National Park somewhere about Sir Bertram Stevens Drive… I am talking 1963 or so… as a scout on one of many journeys down the south coast of NSW

    Hi Roger, Peach Trees (TS3685) is at -34.10792, 151.04405, about 100m east of the Uloola Falls Track. It’s on my map of trig stations, but not one I’ve visited yet…
