Summary: While Notts Trig on top of Notts Hill is well preserved, there is not much of a view from this trig station.

The Notts Trig station on the top of Notts Hill is in great condition, unlike the Waratah Trig and Harris Hill Trig which are also along Kings Tableland Road. The metal mast and vane are on a concrete base and in pristine condition despite the bushfires that went through the area a few years prior. The concrete pad has the words ‘S. Turtle’ scratched into when the concrete was wet, with small picture of a turtle.

Unlike these other trig stations, Notts Trig is surrounded by scrub, and there are only some filtered views through the trees (interestingly, a number of trees close to the trig station have been cut down).

Getting to Notts Trig

There’s no trail to the top of Notts Hill, but it can be approached from a few different directions. One of the easiest routes is from the Andersons Trail, which is about 7.4km along Kings Tableland Road. Head into the scrub in a sourtherly direction about 100m after the locked gate. At the time of my visit there was some thick re-growth from the 2021 bushfires, which will gradually getting more dense, so ease of access will depend a little on when the last fire has gone through the area.
