Reminds me of the coastline around Eden. Are you on the Light to Light walk?
Looking north, maybe Twofold Bay in the distance, so probably at the southern end.

I visit that cemetery annually - my Mum's ashes are scattered there.

Continuing the theme, in NSW…

I haven't walked any of the Coast Track for a while, but I think that's the crossing at Curracarrang Creek.

Thanks. I pretty much know that track as well as any, having walked various sections many times over as day hikes.
Albeit I've never done the overnight trip and haven't been back there due to covid and other issues for a few years.

My shoes started hurting my feet around this area. Surprisingly I couldn't find anyone to fix them.

It's a cryptic clue. But shoes would be the most relevant part of it.

I know it's a cryptic clue. Just querying your grammar.

Usually I'm one of the grammar police :), but you're right. I could have phrased it better.

Let's try, my shoes started hurting me around this location. Surprisingly I couldn't find anyone to fix them.
I'll add that I could walk to the location of the previous photo in two or three hours.

Yep, love walking that section of the old Coast route around Jibbon Point and south.
It's spectacular and hardly anyone goes that way in my experience.
All the insta-famous wannabes go the short way to Wedding Cake Rock.

Try clearing the cache in Safari? I'm not near an iPad right now so can't remember how but in settings somewhere.
I see the photo on my Windows 10 PC fine.

If you're asking "where am I" instead of "where is it" I'll try Flint and Steel Point. Otherwise you're looking at Lion Island and Broken Bay.
