Photo (19??) kindly supplied by DEC - WA Screenshot of old map supplied by MLC in late 2019.

Photos of the tower and towerman's hut were supplied in May 2020 by the
Mundaring and Hills Historical Society Inc. via Trish Beaman
We're still trying to establish what year they were taken.

The tower was refurbished in 1959

The following quote was found in the publication 'Forest Notes' from September 1973 (supplied by MLC):
'The time is coming when towerman will be selected for their ability to put up with crowds reather than solitude. Mt. Dale received 1250 visitors over the Easter weekend - fortunately only a small proportion climbed the tower'.

MLC supplied an old newspaper articles about Mt. Dale. Read the article here. The article appeared in the West Australian on June 30th 1951
