Douglass Point was the 3rd. and final activation for Sunday and the weekend overall.
My G.P.S. got all confused over this one and kept telling us to turn around and go back on a regular basis. Fortunately we pretty much knew what we were doing anyway and had a bit of fun listening to Robot Woman getting cranky with us for not doing what we were being told.

After very carefully driving along the washed out and deeply rutted access road we arrived at the cliff top car park. Although the cliffs here are not very high they can be treacherous and have been known to collapse without warning.
A 30 year old woman lost her life here in a tragic accident in 2010.
Tom, VK5EE and I set up in our usual spot and we were on the air in short order.
A local turned up on his quad bike with his two small grandsons on board shortly after Tom started. He was very interested when I explained the purpose of the weekend and how many parks we had worked in most of the states of VK. The boys started getting restless so he cut the conversation short and took off for greener pastures. A number of four wheel drives came and went during our activation with a few venturing up and over the rocky hill you see in the photographs. Definitely not shopping trolley territory.
This bit of coastline is quite rugged and certainly picturesque.
Tom did the bulk of the operating from here but I still managed to work the following stations:-
Paul, VK5PAS/5 in Nixon-Skinner C.P. VKFF-0923.
Marc, VK3PI on Balmattum Hill. VK3. VU-006.
10 contacts with 1 Park to Park and one summit. A very pleasing effort.
Here is some video:-
Many thanks to those who gave Tom and I a call. It is always appreciated.
