Summary: Waratah Trig Station is just above the Waratah Track, and offers some sweeping views over Ku-ring-gai Chase.

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.
