The Jagungal Trig is in on top of Mount Jagungal, which is in the Jagungal Wilderness Area of the Kosciuszko National Park. The remote and rugged mountain is the seventh-highest mountain in Australia. The trig station consists of a solid concrete column, which is about 1.5m in height.
As Mount Jagungal stands alone in an extensive plain, there is spectacular view from the summit in all directions.
Getting to Mount Jagungal / Jagungal Trig
Reaching the Jagungal peak and trig generally requires a two-day (or longer) bushwalk. The easiest route is via either the Round Mountain Trail or Grey Mare Trail from Tooma Road, which you can combine into a loop bushwalk. It’s about a 6-hour drive from Sydney to the Round Mountain trailhead, via Cooma and the Snowy Mountains Highway. The last 3km or so of the route from the Grey Mare Trail is off-track, although you may find a footpad for part of this secton to the peak. There’s some easy scrambling, but most approaches to the summit are not very steep.
