Long Description:
An easy short walk with great views of this rugged rocky coastline.
The survey mark has a white timber tripod built above it. There are similar tripod along the coast use for navigation, and usually they horizontal boards fitted to the upper section.
Access is via a well-made walking track from the Thunder Point car park
The official name for this mark is WANGOOM PM464, there is no stamped ID number on the mark.
This survey mark appears to have the wrong type of cast brass disc fitted as this mark does not appear to be associated with any geodetic survey work, and (lack of) accuracy on the survey notes reflects this.
State/Territory: VIC
