Thanks Tyreless

This one again in NSW. With a fairly identifiable feature. What am I looking up at?

Devils hole, Blue Mountains National Park. NSW

Thanks wildwanderer. One day I will have something to post that is not NSW. Today is not that day...

I cannot recall the name. A very pretty drive from near Katoomba (vaguely), crossed the Six Foot Track, through some gates, to a campsite, start of a walk to Warrigal (sp?). Dunphy campsite? We took in part of the K2K walk from the start. It would assist if I could find my map ... Of course it could be Pigeon House or Mount Tate. It's west of the NSW coast.

It's not Dunphy's Campsite, it's a few KM north of that. You've actually used the name of the feature I was looking for but don't think I can award the win until you corcectly describe how the the feature relates to the picture.

I was right, it's west of the NSW coast! Agreed though, something more specific. I just realised that I only have BM North and that the Megalong is on the BM South map. I can recall some tracks to the north of where we were, and could probably spot it on a map. The picture is quite distinctive. I checked my pictures - it's not Tate. Maybe the Six Foot Track. Where it is in relation to anything is outside my remit.

yes, it's the 6 foot track in the Megalong, looking east towards Katoomba. Your turn Lophophaps

Thanks. I thought that a location on the SFT was needed. It looked like a view towards Katoomba but I was only there once a year ago ... Still in NSW.

Not The Granites. Try some way further in that continuing general direction. Also, my map shows that it's about 1.5 km from a 4WD track. My map is 30 years old.
