Umm, yes Greg. My vague clue was meant to allude to the watercourse visited being not large (in name).
So, longer than 40 foot, or 60 foot even, but still little?

Actually I don't haha. I inferred that you're on the way to/from Little River, but still don't know the location.

Neither do I :lol:. Well I do, but not precisely. Little River is all I needed. Would have accepted Blue Gum Creek also.
We're on the way back from LR probably looking up at Buckland Wall/Sharp Peak on the right. All yours.

It's smaller than little. It’s around 40 foot.

Ta. I'll never forget 40 foot falls - my walk along the Nattai that day reached a new level of leechiness - I feel lucky to have made it out alive.

Another from NSW…

I know this spot but it's eluding me. That straight line at the back looks too contrived to be natural.
I'm guessing it could be the Kosci walkway. Maybe near the Kosci Lookout?
Going over the ridge at the back would take you into the Rams Heads (unless I'm wrong :roll:).

It's a pass, yes, but not pallin. The background contains quite a well known feature. Elementary really.

Yes Tyreless, that was quick. From Olsens Lookout.
I guess there was some irony in posting something with almost the same name as in the previous photo.
