I made it! To the geographic center of Tasmania! It’s just east of Bronte Park, and was — according to the plaque here — actually found due TO TRIGONOMETRY. It’s the first case, in recorded human history, of trigonometry actually playing any useful role at all. 

Note: I had just finished Tasmania’s six-day Overland Track, but only got hurt trying to climb this THING. It was worth it.
