Grossly insulted or not, we need more clues.

Please?

Sending me a money order worked. Thank you, NNW. All directions refer to latitude and longitude.
South of Mount Buller,
west of Moroka,
north of Heyfield and
east of Sheepyard Flat.
The peak or whatever it is (could be a river, maybe a gorge) is in the Victorian Alps. I need to write this down as I forget things.

No. Try south of a line through Skene, Kent and Hawkhurst. Skene and Hawkhurst are the left and right edges, longitudes. North of the Licola latitude.

Correct. I thought that this would be an easy one. This is on the Tali track from the last bridge. All yours.

Thanks Lophophaps. I'm not sure how well its known. I never here much about it on the forums. Years ago we followed the wellington down stream rather than go over the saddle to check it out- it was fun diversion but with a few deep wades.

next is from NSW

looks a bit like Narawallee inlet on the south coast
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended,
And at night the wondrous glory of the everlasting stars.

I haven't seen it quite that closed, but I will take a guess at Corunna lake. Most of the lakes close up down that way. Magic part of NSW.

Not Corunna Cajun. I'm needing to look most of these up - not being a local. It might help if I say I'm standing in a National Park.

And if it isn't Nelson, then perhaps it is the lagoon just north? Near middle beach camping ground?
Google tells me it is called Sandy Creek / Middle lagoon.

The creek is actually Woodburn but the locale,camp ground and the creek at the other end of the beach (but just out of view) are all known as Saltwater Creek. So i'm calling this a win for Robert.

Are you sticking with the South 'Coast' theme? Looks like Mumbulla Falls. The water doesn't look completely inviting though........

Somewhere with a resident population of Koalas. North coast or maybe Port Stephens area?

I'm not too surprised that this hasn't received much traction - doubt many people have been up here (track was nearly non-existant to the top).

A more revealing view from the top.......
