Stoney Mountain firetower is located near Booral NSW and overlooks the Kauah Valley catchment. It was originally built in the 1950's by the Masonite Corporation and used up until the 1970's.
The tower was destroyed by fire in the early 1980's, all that remained was the lower steel ladder section.
With the help of some old photos and local people, the tower was re-built by enthusiasts in the original location. That location is now on private property and the tower is currently (Jan 2019) not used as a Fire Tower.
