As one of the most prominent natural feature on the south coast, it’s not surprising that the Pigeon House Trig boasts one of the best views of any trig station in NSW.
Unfortunately, part of the physical trig station was removed after the 2019/20 bushfires.
The natural rocky summit was replaced by a modern steel and timber viewing platform.
The trig station post is still under the platform. but without its vanes. A metal plate embedded in the viewing platform also marks the trig point.
Getting to Pigeon House Trig
Getting to the trig station is half the fun… the Pigeon House / Didthul summit is reached by a steep walking track, which culminates in a set of steel ladders and stairs up the vertical cliffs. Allow 2-3 hours for the return walk. To reach the start of the walk, there’s a 30min drive from the Princes Highway just south of Ulladulla on the south coast, on mostly unsealed roads (4WD or AWD recommended after rain).
