Thank you. Moving away from KNP and the Main Range to Southern NSW ... actually I think it's now called Victoria. Yes, Victoria, west of Cape Howe.

It is not WOG Silverband Falls, or Silverband Falls. The "Falls" part is correct.

Surely as the state capital is just a suburb of Launceston, Victoria would be North Tasmania?

True, and the Kiwis call Oz the West Island. I wonder if they need a former Deputy PM. Another clue. The waterfall is not near Cataract Gorge. It's further north, across the now submerged land bridge, north of the Tidal River latitude.

No. Time for a real clue. As far as I'm aware the waterfall has no name.

Not Golton Gorge. It's west of the Hume Freeway and south of the Mildura latitude. It's not at Wyperfeld NP.

Between the Hamilton and Western Highways, in a national park, 2-3 hours from the start of the walk, near a well-known mountain.

Right NP, too far north. As far as I'm aware there is no track to this place. It receives few visitors.

So we're in the Grampians after all. You weren't that helpful when I said Silverband.

The secret is to listen to what Lops doesn't say GBW. :shock: :?

WOG SIlverband Falls was the response. I do not know where WOG Siverband Falls is located. I'me not saying a lot. Further west of the Rosea region. I make no comment about Bundaleer or Eastern Wall, and what rock climbers may see that bushwalkers do not.

Mope. Closer to the Henty Highway. Did I mention that I solve cryptic crosswords?

Lops you are a cryptic "where is it" wizard!

So closer to Henty highway eh!..........that means it's also closer to Adelaide.....ah ha!

Jardwadjali Falls.....or one of the other unnamed falls on Cultivation Creek?

By the way the Vicdata I'm using with QGIS locates 47 waterfalls in the GNP region.

Not Cultivation Creek, but close to there, about 7 kilometres of walking, say three hours. There's a small camping cave nearby. All my clues are accurate. I did not mention Bundaleer or Eastern Wall as the waterfall is not near there. I will not mention Mount Bogong either.

I'm not in the Billywing now, but the pic was taken in or near there. I cannot recall if the creek is named, will look as soon as I get home.

Edit - the creek has no name.

OK, I usually enjoy these, but is it really fair to expect people to identify (a pretty bad photo of) a waterfall with no name on a creek with no name?
What are we supposed to do - give lat. and long.?

This waterfall is very close to two major features, and is on the route between the two. A third feature is also close. The waterfall is close to a named creek. It's visible from the small camping cave and the bluff above the cave. Two of the features have a tracks, and the other has been in the magazine. The waterfall is marked on my map. There are three other waterfalls within about 1.5 kilometres.
