Carl Bacon reported some sad news in Aug 2017: "I have some rather disappointing news in relation to a number of towers around my area here in Chinchilla after a recent 4x4 trip around the state forest here. It appears as though QPWS have issued the order to demolish all of the existing towers within the Barkula and Bollon state forests. I can confirm that below towers have been demolished and removed from site. Some of these towers (Coondarra & Turkey Mt) have been transported to the local museum here in Chinchilla for restoration and display in the near future.
· Turkey Mountain #6 (Cabin removed)
· Coondarra #5 (Tower and footings complete removed)
· Waaje #4 (Tower and footings complete removed)
· Wongongera #8 (Tower and footings complete removed)
· Mt George #7 (Tower and footings complete removed)
