Tide gauge benchmarksNMV/B/458: RAN BM 'A' The top of an iron stake driven into the rock and standing about 0.23m high on the north west side of Booby Island approximately 6m north of the tide gauge hut.
Benchmark relationshipsTide Gauge Zero (TGZ) = 10.97m below TGBM. TGZ = 2.68m below Australian Height Datum (AHD) - trig. heighting.
Auxiliary benchmarksNMV/B/459: RAN BM 'B' The eastern bolt of 2 stainless steel bolts holding a clamp on the tide gauge pipe, approx. at high water and immediately in front of and to the north of a cement slab through which the pipe runs. NMV/B/461: 'Charlie 72' An AHS bronze plaque to the west of NMV/B/459.
