This tower no longer exists.
The photo was taken by Leon Pederick in 1951 and supplied via Noel Fraser and used with permission.

It was located in the centre-east of the Wallaby Creek Water Catchment. It was used as a secondary tower and had telephone connection with local headquarters and Strath Tower.
An unconfirmed story tells us that Ted Roycroft cut the top off the tree for an extra 5 shillings in his pay.
The tree was cut down in 1966 or 1967 by Donald Evans an employee with Melbourne Water (then MMBW).
