Thanks Last, good strategy. That's why I first guessed incorrectly, too lazy to search my own shots :).

From the high point on the far left I could possibly see the location of the previous photo, some 60 kms away.

There are many named features around this area, including the one I'm on. But I just need the name of this much visited locality.
I may be on top, and I'd spin around to show more features, but worried I'll spiral out of control.

In the interest of keeping the game moving that's close enough. I was only looking for Kanangra Walls.
I'm ~a couple of kms south on Seymour Top. Over to you Keith.

I did look at the 4 tops, but none of them seemed to match any of the clues.

Anyone can go next ......

Yep, clues were focused mainly on Kanangra Walls as I thought it may be easier to get.

Re-iterating, anyone can go next...

Yes, eggs, to all of the above. Situated in the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges NP, close to its boundary with the Arkaroola Sanctuary.

I feel like it should be somewhere in the Pound, but can't make it fit!

Are you looking at Mt Chambers?

I think there is a summit cairn in view, and you are just north of the Gorge?

Wow, could be so many places but I'll guess the big sand blow on Stradbroke Island.

Really close but wrong island!

I think I can see a point where all the vehicles turn around and don't go along the beach any further! Funny that.

Bigger!

There's also a flashy building a couple hundred meters from me! Not useful for drivers other than to look at, but used by others to prevent a soggy ending!

Yes, at the very northern set of dunes. Near the Sandy Point lighthouse. (flashy, get it?)

I'm coming down from one peak, then "heading" for the one at the back.
