You're in the wider frame NNW, but not Wild Dog Tier (neither Projection or Quamby - although they wouldn't be too far north). Hopefully I'm looking at what I think I am from this spot, but it isn't Bastion etc as I'm facing away from them.

Not there eggs. Without getting out a ruler it's possibly a bit further away than NNW's guess, albeit in a different direction. However I am at a lookout.

I think everyone stops to photograph that rock stack.

So far the only other thing I've come up with is Church Rock, but it doesn't look like that, and this looks more remote.
Must be hard, 110 views and no one else has guessed.

Not Church Rock. This is one small part of a more extensive area.

You'll be sorry for giving me lip.

I've scoured the map for anything vaguely labial/oral/buccal etc, but have come up empty. :( No sign of a bight either. Help!

So far you're all too far north. Maybe the clue was a little too cryptic, although I grint a lot when I thought of it.

So how far south does Takayna go? I bet you can do David Astle cryptics. :wink:

No. Defining the area is one of the challenges we face in protecting it appropriately. The heart of it is the current Arthur-Pieman Protected Area, which is essentially bounded by the Indian Ocean to the west, the Arthur and Pieman Rivers north and south, and the Murchison Highway to the east. Most of us include areas beyond that. Personally, I'd like the takayna/Tarkine NP to include the entire coast from at least as far north as preminghana (maybe even pilri) and down to Trial Harbour - allowing excisions for the existing settlements, of course - and include all the forests and mountains to the Cradle-StClair boundary. It's ridiculous that Murchison and the Tyndalls aren't appropriately protected.


But that is outside the scope of the game. This is from a spot within the APCA.

A wider shot of the same rock:


ps: Place names in palawa kani aren't captialised. It's 'takayna'.

Not sure at all, but loos Tyndall-ish. Maybe Lake Plimsoll?

Burbury? Al;though it's a big impoundment and I'm having trouble placing exactly where you would be.

Correct, stepbystep.
It is the picturesque Lake Cumberland, an early impoundment created by the tin miners of the South Heemskirk Tin Field.
