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. 
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). 
Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories. Victoria's mainland and islands have a total length of 2,512 kilometres coastline which is about 4.2% of Australia's 59,736 kilometres of coastline. Australia is the driest inhabited continent and Victoria is no exception although the state capital Melbourne has the reputation to have 4 seasons in one day. Victoria is located in the southeast of mainland Australia and includes the most southern point on mainland Australia at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
