Here I was thinking this would be a bit difficult... and Zapruda has got it correct after 37 minutes. It's Corang River - I arrived via a scrubby off-track route up the river but this spot can be accessed more easily from the Corang Loop track.

This cave near the Colo River is named after a famous surveyor.

Ah, the interesting "Major" Clews, should have got that one.
Fascinating man, I have a book on the Snowy Hydro history in which he features a fair bit.
Didn't really know about his other adventures until I read this https://coloriver.com.au/history/100_major_clews_biography.pdf
Worth a read.
