Information

The Twins are two distinctive conical shaped hills that lie side by side. Madigan had climbed these and found a small cairn, probably built by the surveyor T.E. Dale, while on a traverse from Charlotte Waters to the eastern MacDonnell Ranges in 1916. Today there are plaques erected by the RGS (SA branch) and by Reg Sprigg, both in 1967, that now adorn the cairn.
