  1. Whistling Trig Tank is one of our newest watering points.

    Called Whistling Trig as the tank structure whistles in the wind, as the wind passes through the frame.

    It is quite an exposed site and not suitable for camping unless you have a tent capable of withstanding potentially high winds. The trig is Crown Land, however the surrounding paddocks are private property
