Thanks Tyreless. People have different ideas about graffiti these days but 100 years ago, I'm guessing no one had an issue with it.
I seem to be on a sunset theme ATM, more NSW

When you live 20mins away from such awesome wilderness it's hard not too.

Since everyone seems to be partial to NSW. Here's one from QLD.

Well, you would not get it in NSW, so that's a relief!

I'm saying Grampians, but struggling at the moment for more exactitude.

I will need more exactitude. It is in the Grampians - but from a named location / walking track

Couldn't remember it last night but it was obvious this morning.

This one is also in Victoria:

Hint: not all that far from egg's photograph (and also looking in a southerly direction).

On the assumption that you're looking up to Orphan Rock, I'd say you're on the Scenic Walkway track, not too far from the cableway bottom station.

None of those, I'm not in that precinct (although not excessively far away).

That's it jonnosan. The rough, vague, but pretty, section on the eastern side of Sublime Point.

Cheers johnw. For a long time (possibly still now), there was a wetsuit tied to one of those palms I think.

Another NSW one.

I didn't think it would take a super long time for someone to guess this. Do I need to add a clue for people to narrow the field down?

I think it's a little further south of that Croll. Looks like Narrow Neck.
