MONUMENT NO. 1158174

DESCRIPTION + /

The 20th Century coastguard tower and station was mapped from aerial photographs taken in 1941. Located on the cliffs of Hurlstone Point, the rectangular building is stone-built and measures about 7.5 metres NNW-SSE long by 5.5 metres ESE-WSW wide. In 1941, a large, white painted, tapered mast or flagpole was visible on the cliff a few metres to the northwest of the building which may relate to semaphore signalling equipment. A field visit in 1996 records the tower as still extant.
