But I am not on the Crosscut Saw.

The horizon look like the crosscut, Buggery and Mt Spec so maybe from the Razor?

Sorry I've gone too obscure - More clues required. This waterway is very close but you may need to dig for the answer.

OK - last pic appears to be Moleside Camp on the Glenelg River.
Chasing this around the www reveals the Moleside Falls - on Moleside Creek

Correct thanks Eggs. Lesson learnt - not too obscure although I thought some of my fellow Vics may have been there.

The second photo suggested the Glenelg River - which got me started.

What is this colourful location in SA?

Yes, I got it last time, but was less certain re this shot. That rusty-looking terrain might be on Mars. Eggs, you do have a knack for capturing intriguing colours.

Here's a much drabber landscape in Victoria. Name the river and the park. Extra points for the locality.

Gellibrand River, I think in (or bordering) the Port Campbell NP? From somewhere along the GOW I presume

J M, you've correctly named the river, but not the park. Your presumption about the track is spot on, so the park name should be just a formality.

Yes, that's it. Even though Port Campbell NP is much closer than Cape Otway.

First Thoughts were Steavenson Falls, but I suspect not.

Yep, not steavensons falls. It's probably time for a clue as well - this is in the alps NP
