Here there be Surges. The Waste Point Surge Tank in all its awesome glory
The Waste Point Lookout is towards the top of the first climb after you enter the park on the road to Perisher and Charlotte Pass. It has good views over Lake Jindabyne. The lookout is dominated by a huge concrete cylinder. This cylinder is a surge tank, use to ameliorate the effect of water hammer in one of the Snowy Mountains Scheme tunnels far below. However, it is not advisable to linger after sunset, when the surges leave the tank to do their dastardly deeds. There is another such tank on the track to Whites River Hut from Munyang power station
