Australia/NZ Benchmarks
Description:
This category is for logging permanent survey marks throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Expanded Description:

Waymarks suitable for this category include:

1. Permanent Survey Marks with a cast metal disc
2. Any vertical or horizontal control point with visible and clear surveying markings.
3. Trig Points not able to be listed in the Australian Trig Points category.
4. Historic survey marks.

Note: This category's intention is to work alongside the Australian Trig Points waymarking category. While metal benchmark discs associated with Trig Points could be logged here validly, please submit these to the Australian Trig Points category. All New Zealand benchmarks (including Trig Points) are welcome to be logged here.

In the interest of quality of content in the category, surveying markers such as: painted marks, flag markers, small pins or any other temporary survey marks will not be accepted. Rule of thumb: Is the point interesting enough for another member to spend their time looking for the mark?

Many permanent survey marks are marked on topographic maps and websites such as Geoscience Australia's Mapconnect. State Government land management sites can also be used to locate them.

Instructions for Posting a Australia/NZ Benchmarks Waymark:

To log a Waymark in this category:

1. Locate an interesting survey mark. This could be in an interesting location, near a point of interest, have a rare or unusual marker or disc, have a scenic outlook, be a historic marker or have some other feature that would make the point interesting enough for another member to spend their time looking for the mark.
2. Include the station ID number (if available) and the location in the waymark title: (e.g. 107398 Mt Cootha summit lookout QLD).
3. A close-up photo of the marker. If the marker has a cover the cover needs to be opened and the marker cleaned and visible in the photograph.
4. At least one photo of the location (preferably with the marker included). If there's a great view or nearby point of interest make sure a photo is included!
5. A description of the marker and location. Please also include information on access point (e.g. Access via trail at end of Simpson Rd.). Leave as much info as you think necessary for other members to follow your lead!

Please use the following list of state government websites (where possible) to assist you to identify the survey mark for inclusion in your description

As of 1st Dec 2014, entries of similar marks in a locality that do not meet the ‘interesting’ test will no longer be approved. This will be at the discretion of the approver and marks which otherwise meet the requirements may be declined to prevent "flooding" of the category. Waymarkers can contact the category group prior to waymark creation if they have any questions/concerns.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Include a photo of the mark with your GPS and give a description of your visit. Include any information regarding changes to the marker or area others may find useful. Additional photos of the surrounding area are also welcome.
