Mount Stronarch CairnPrint Page
Cairn associated with the 19th century survey of Tasmania.
A concern by the colonial government about the lack of available farming land led to a request that George Scott survey the area between the Saint Patricks River and the north-east coast in the early 1850s. The area was unexplored and unknown. Scott found land suitable for farming and this led to settlement in the area. The cairn is a surveyor`s cairn, possibly constructed after the survey by Scott in the 1850s. It is part of the system of survey cairns used for the triangulation survey of Tasmania.
