A view from the fire spotters tower on Mt Tarrengower.

The tower was originally the poppet legs of the Comet Mine in Bendigo, and was brought to Maldon by rail in 80' (24m) lengths. [1]

Mr. William Adams put up the money for the project, approx. 600 pounds. It is not known for certain if Mr. Williams ever got his money back. The tower was officially opened on 26th Jan. 1924, Foundation Day (Australia day). [1]
