The Waratah trig station (TS4625) was constructed in 1882 by Thomas Charles Swannell, a piling overseer in the Department of Lands. The post and vanes are missing, but the stone base is in pretty good condition.
There are views over Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Cowan Creek. In the distance is Yeomans Bay (to the right) and Cottage Point at the junction of Coal & Candle Creek and Cowan Creek (on the left).
