Thanks crollsurf. I walked that track a few years ago when we were car camping at Tuross with my wife's family.

Still NSW, what feature am I on?

I should know better than make the KNP ones too easy when you're playing Zapruda :).
Yes, on the Crummer Spur heading up to both Twynams with Blue Lake hidden beyond the rocks on the right.

Thanks John. It’s probably a good indication that I spend far too much time in the park.

Still in NSW.

It is without a doubt not doubtful creek. It is definitely a creek. That’s for sure.

Hey Tyreless, it’s not Valentine creek.

This creek is off track but doesn’t take toolong to reach from the nearest road.

I was in the right NP, and the answer was pretty plain, or nearby.

Thanks Zapruda. I've yet to walk in that part of the park but the "toolong" clue sent me scurrying for the map. Worked it out from that.

Not Rams Head South, but I'm at almost the same elevation. Bobs Ridge was closer.

The Pilot is getting colder still but I could see it from here.

I tried to make this one harder Zapruda, otherwise you get them too easily :). Yes, The Chimneys it is.
I had other views from here that would have given it away, such as looking at the Rams Heads.

You certainly got me. I looked at my pics from the Chimneys earlier this morning and couldn't find the resemblance. Good angle :)

NSW - Where am I enjoying this lovely fire?
