Summary: Sandy Trig is one of the best preserved (and most easily reached) trig stations in the north of Sydney.

An impressively well-preserved trig station, Sandy Trig is located in a small reserve in Duffys Forest, between residential properties.

“Another station that might have been expected to succumb to the pressure of development is Sandy trig at Duffys Forest. Fortunately, the residential lots in that area are large and although Sandy is surrounded by private properties it survives in its original form and appears to be regard with some affection by those living nearby.”
