Summary: Although most of the pieces of the trig station are still in situ, Harris Hill Trig has been largely destroyed by the elements. There are fantastic views from the top of Harris Hill.

Located on the top of Harris Hill, a rocky outcrop on Kings Tableland, is the Harris Hill Trig. The trig station has been mostly demolished, although it’s obvious where it once stood.

The mast and metal vane is lying next to the remains of the stone cairn, and the nameplate is still on the vane.

The trig was in a fairly good state until 2020, so severe storms in 2021/2022 are likely to have caused it’s demise (the nearby Waratah Trig suffered a similar state). Photos below from Geocaching Australia, taken in 2015 and 2020.

While the trig station has seen better the days, there is a fantastic view from the top of Harris Hill.

Getting to Harris Hill Trig

There’s no trail to the trig station, but there’s a relatively easy off-track route from Kings Tableland Road to the north-east. Just before Harris Hill there’s a small rocky outcrop – you can go over the top or around it. The start of the walk is about 11.6km down Kings Tableland Road.
