Marley Lagoon?
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended,
And at night the wondrous glory of the everlasting stars.

Thanks John

I don't have access to photos atm - anyone can have a go.

And at night the wondrous glory of the everlasting stars.

PS I may be pedantic but also not adverse to giving a clue - the object this picture is focused on was once the most iconic site for tourists visiting Katoomba, before safety concerns led to it being closed.

The spring snow probably limits the possible number of bolders to less than 5,000,000 :) so i'm going to say Mount Anton.
