Summary: There’s no evidence of the Wheeler Heights trig station. It’s easy to reach, but there are multiple (unofficial) signs indicating it's on private land.

Unlike the Cromer Heights Trig which offers great views, there are no views from this trig station. There’s not even a trig station – just a pile of stones where the Wheeler Heights trig station used to be.

The trig station site is accessed via the Red Hill Main Trail. There are unofficial signs near the firetrail that suggests the site of the trig station may be on private land. There are developments encroaching on both ends of Red Hill Reserve, so it’s hard to determine from the topographical map where the boundaries lie.
