Long Mile Trig Station

56J 462172E 6783184N


I've seen this trig on the map and have been curious about it's access. There are a few trigs out here, west of Casino - and there's quite a few located not to far from reasonable roads, but you never know if they're on private property or not. This one looks safe, so I need to check it out.

I decided to hide a GC cache here. It's a nice area and a good walk. A nice place to get away from the world and appreciate the simple things. You can see the cache page here:

Progress Notes:

20/Mar/2023: I had a day off work so decided to check out a couple of potential trigs while testing out a new app that used SIX maps as their overlay. This was number two for the day. I’d scoped this trig out previously, and found a few places that could offer access to it. One from the north, down an electrical easement, another from the south and the one I chose on the west. Maps showed a track of some kind, but I couldn’t see anything on satellite imagery.

I parked at S29° 4.361' E152° 36.192' and made my way up what was signposted as Ridge Road. Little more than some sandstone rock that had been exposed by heavy rain. There were overgrown patches as I climbed a bit higher in elevation, and I was soon at a gate. The walking was much clearer after this - I followed an old road, now cattle trail for a while - some nice easy walking, and then started to climb a hill. There were a few good views between the trees as I climbed. Near the top I could see Mt Superbus - the highest mountain in Southern Queensland and far south as the Timbarra Trig Hill. I wouldn’t have know I could see so much from up here.

The top of the hill is home to the trig. A concrete pillar in good condition, sans pole and vanes. The old cairn from what would have been the previous trig is mostly dismantled but still recognisable. The name plate reading “Long Mile” is still present.

A nice pleasant walk without having to get too hot or sweaty.
