I actually it would be an easy spot to pick. Its on such an amazing walk. Perhaps less do that walk than I expected or people don't take that much notice of it.

If you zoom into the photo there is a clue to the location on the left hand side of the horizon.

Not Miners Pass. You can’t see that cleared area in the valley from Miners Pass.

Looks like the view from (about 10m from) the campsite at the top of Watsons Pass?

Haha yeh it is... I tend to think of Folly Pt as the lookout to the west of the campsite, but the whole thing is FP I think

NSW again... not too many of these in the state so should be easy to deduce:
