No, not near Dalpura. Crollsurf's answer was closer.

This would be a good spot to lay out your swag.

Yes, John, Gooches Crater is just on the right hand side of those rocks. The canyon next to it is Billabong Canyon. It's very short, but you can look in from above and walk up from the bottom.

Thanks Tim, it was mostly a hunch. Done some bits and pieces around there but Gooches et al remain on my to do list.

Yes WW. Interestingly, on Dave Noble's website/blog he researched waterfalls along Greaves Creek/Rodriguez Pass and visited a number of historically named falls downstream from Beauchamp:
Popes Falls, Foy Falls, John Harris Falls, Bettington Falls and Campbell Falls (which is the one where you cross the creek). From memory I'm at one of the lower cascades of Campbell Falls.

It might, but it isn't. There has never been water at Paradise Falls when I've visited.

That's it. Neat little spot.

You have some correct names for the area John, but a bit mixed up. Hint - its not "Chambers Gorge".

I'm relying on some dodgy labelling apparently. Let's try Mt Chambers (Chambers Gorge nearby).
I don't know what/where the other thing is but a lot of sites seem to have it wrong.

Mount Chambers is correct.
I see the internet overrules me on the next bit.
Its a bit pedantic - but it is also Mount Chambers Gorge - but I concede it is often called Chambers Gorge.
The other peak is not anywhere in view and is not even the tallest in the gorge area - it is called Saint George Bluff

Thanks eggs, I'll be guided by your considerable local knowledge.

NSW, might be an easy one:

Thought it would be easy. Yes Greg, I'm looking at the mighty Ball's Pyramid from a vessel about 1 km off it.

I'm still hoping to dive it in the near future, so for me that was as easy as a picture on here gets!!

This ones in Vic. Should be easy.

I think probably the Jaitmathangs? It was foggy when I was there, and the angle from the Fainters is wrong.

No probably about it. It wa pretty bloomin' awful this day too. Clouds only parted long enough to get a pic or 2 then back to very grim indeed.

It Is Hugh River indeed.
There is one 30m waterfall in Hugh Gorge which cannot be climbed down and would require either abseiling or a climb out of the gorge.
I presume Macrozamia Amphitheatre is the top small bowl in Hugh Gorge:
