Blue skies outside, but I'm still in the mood for snow. This one is south of the border, however. A straightforward Where Am I?

I was tempted to put this up, but it's probably a bit too Lophophapsish.

To qualify ideally it should be of a feature/place that no longer exists and/or no one other than the poster has ever seen, and cannot be found on any map past or present - preferably photographed at night :lol:

Mt Stapylton, maybe from Mt Zero?

Neither but you are in the general area, not too far away.

Similar looking just here, but no. You are much closer however, keep heading north.

This one is not in the Flinders Ranges.
The place name is a waterfall.

That's the spot. Not far from the Murray, this cuts through a line of granite to drop through a large jumble of boulders.
Was just a trickle in October, but some nice deep pools at various levels.

Thanks eggs. I haven't seen it at any more than a trickle. Nice place to visit though.

Back to NSW, hopefully an easy spot to name...

Looks coastal, I'm thinking Durras, Batemans Bay, Tuross region. From memory the start of the Bingi Dreaming track was something like this.

It is a coastal swamp but not in those regions mentioned. I'm after the name of the swamp.
