Ascent Trip ReportImpromptu drive-up en route from Sydney to Kosciuszko. From S, paved road to popular parking lot with ice cream vendor and 10m ascent to highest point which has a circular metal column (presumably triangulation pillar) also two other survey markers consisting of one inch metal survey bolts under metal covers, a heavy duty version of the Berntsen trigs familiar in the UK. One of the survey markers is near the aircraft warning beacon below the summit. A fine viewpoint also for the parliament building in a beautiful setting.
NB sign below summit says 846m not 843
