Summary: A modern steel post with steel vanes, Somersby Trig is located on a small hill on the dge of the industrial area of Somersby.

A relatively new trig staton, Somersby Trig doesn’t appear on the 1942 or 1943 topographic maps of the area. The trig is a steel post trig with vanes, which is in reasonable condition.

The trig point is on a small hill, between two much taller telecommunications towers.

There would have been a decent view when the area was cleared; there’s now only a view over Somersby and the Brisbane Water National Park to the west. And the sound of traffic on the Pacific Motorway, which is only 150m away to the east.

Getting to the Somersby Trig

It’s an easy trig to reach – head to Debenham Road North, and look for a short service trail that goes up to a fenced telecommunications facility. You can drive the short distance up to the building. Walk along the service trail around the north, or left, side of the building and look for a walking track that goes to the top of the hill.
