Thanks eggs, yet to get that far north.
Sadly, won't be happening anytime soon either. I'll stay in QLD:

The start of the climb up Mt Ngungun looks similar but this is further south.
On reflection this quasi-subterranean spot featured in the game a long time ago.

Closer but not Mt Barney. This isn't a mountain, almost the opposite.

Not Palm Gorge, I'm a fair distance east of there Greg. This is a named cave.

Still in Queensland...

Long time since I was there but thinking you might be somewhere around Main Range or Moogerah Peaks?

Wow, close :wink:. Seems likely somewhere in the wet tropics, let's try and narrow it down.
Where you are standing reminds me of the summit on Walsh's Pyramid south of Cairns, although I can't match the surrounding landscape.

Phew, I thought I'd broken the game.

I'm north of Cairns (so I'm also north of Townsville).

The name of the national park will do. It shares its name (partly) with a spin-off from the Inspector Morse TV series.

I like a man who answers confidently and assertively, because he knows he is 100% right.

Go for it Eggs

Oh deary me Ms NNW. At least you should appreciate me as I am only ever wrong when I open my mouth according to my wife, my 2 daughters and now my 2 granddaughters. But Eggs on the other hand is always right.. he's hardboiled, he's easy over but always shows his sunny side is up! And he's the winner.

Actually - I think I have got it wrong often enough to amuse NNW.
At least I hope so.

But it always helps when you have been to a spot.
