G'day. Love the maps. There's one symbol - a black 'sun' - that appears on the map, especially when we start heading west from the FNQ coast. What is this indicating on the map? I can't seem to find this symbol in the legend. I've attached a photo if it fyi. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark,
Can you give an approximate location or lat/long?

It looks like the "Pinnacle" symbol as defined by GeoScience Aust in their Symbol Dictionary for Topographic Maps.

Looks like they are marking the 'pointy' limestone outcrops around Chillagoe, so I guess in mapping terms they are pinnacles.
