The Transportable Tracking Station was closed and moved out of Australia in 1970.

The old main entrance now leads to a farmhouse just north of the station.

 

In 2004, Jack Watson retured to the site of Cooby Creek Tracking Station to discover that there’s not much left.

Thanks to Jack for these photos, and to Ken Anderson for passing them on —
