Fire Lookout Towers in
Here you will find details, history and photos of Victorian towers.
There were a few towers in the early 20's and 30's but the majority were built after the disastrous fires in 1939.
We have divided Victoria up in sections according to the old SMR radio regions as used by the
DELWP (Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, ex NRE, DSE & DEPI)
The original Forest Commission of Victoria has had a few name changes over the years: CFL, NRE, DSE, DEPI and since early 2015 DELWP
The CFA (Country Fire Authority) Regions are listed into their Total Fire Ban districts.
PLEASE NOTE: "PUBLIC ACCESS TO SITE" MEANS EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS: ACCESS TO THE SITE ONLY. IT DOES NOT MEAN ACCESS TO THE LOOKOUT.
