Long Description:
This QLD Permanent Survey Marker benchmark was installed in 2009 to commemorate 150 years of surveying as part of Queensland’s 150 year birthday celebrations.

The Survey and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) has installed 60 permanent benchmarks across Queensland allowing the public to check the accuracy of GPS units and growing awareness of the science of surveying.

Designation: 172926

Location: Gladstone Marina - Spinnaker Park, Alf O'Rourke Drive, Gladstone

Mark is set into the top of a stone block. Unfortunately the Q150 signage which was attached to the block has been removed. A real shame as would have looked great in this location when installed.
State/Territory: QLD
