Mt. Hooghly finished as a Forest Commission tower in 1962 with the lease to APM Forests of areas north of the Grand Ridge. Looking at the photo, we can say that Mt. Hooghly Fire Lookout is no longer in use.

We have found 4 different spellings for this tower: Mt. Hooghly, Mt. Hoohgly, Mt. Hooghily and Mt. Houghly.
All 4 names were found in official papers from the Forest Commission of Victoria. We are still researching for the real name.

We received a report in December 2009 that the roof is now missing.
