NSW, Sydney North, MANGROVE MOUNTAIN, (aka "The Pony Club")

Crown Land but restricted access (Locked gate)
Good Flat observing site, easy access, plenty of room, set up next to your vehicle, NO FACILITIES currently (NO Toilets, No Water, No Power)
Dark sky, some low sky glow to the South from Sydney, some local light from distant street light to the south can be avoided by choosing your setup spot accordingly
Restrictions (access may be denied when equestrian clubs are holding overnight campouts {once or twice a year})
No camping
How to get there: See sticky with directions and maps at the top of this forum. 1 hour north of Sydney, via M1, on Wisemans Ferry Road.
Several IIS members have access key. Planned meetings Saturday closest to New Moon, a new Thread always posted in this forum. Other times by arrangement upon application can generally be accommodated.
GPS: 33* 20' 17.6" South; 151* 09' 25.6" East.
