CFA Region 6 - South Western

In the Forest Commission's Annual Report 1926-1927 it states:
"During the year, the following additional fire lookout stations were established: Creswick, Mt. Disappointment, Mt. Donna Buang, Mt. Drummer, Mt. Nowa Nowa, Beech Forest and Mt. Macedon.
Four of these stations were operating last summer, and all seven will be operating during the summer of '27-'28".

The timber tower was inspected in April 1970 and it was reported that two legs "were found to be rotted right through and only the outer casing reduced to 12.5mm thick supported the structure".
The tower was demolished almost immediately.
There is some correspondence about micro-wave dishes on the new tower but details about the new tower are yet to be confirmed.
