Not Dairymans creek either.

Clue -They just put a new road right through the middle of this plain...

The plain and the creek share the same name.

Same names brings the shortlist down. I know it already had a road because I've been on it but I'll try Tantangara Plain.

I reckon that's taken from the summit of South Rams Head, looking east.

Yep, often confused with the actual SRH about 1 km further down the spur. Doesn't help that some of the maps are misleading.

Always a confusing POI. I believe the current topos don't even name it...

ACT for a change.

Online SIX Maps topo still shows SRH (and the correct location and height!) but Southerly is an unofficial name has never been listed to my knowledge.
It's far more impressive and deserves a name I think :).

Interesting. Its not on my collection of CMA maps either. Agreed, definitely more impressive. Some really nice protected spots for a camp as well.

Not Booroomba Rocks.

This rock has a vague 4wd track that leads to it.

Not in Tidbinbilla.

It was much closer to the Rendezvous Creek guess.

The rock itself is not named on maps.

It reminds me a bit of a boulder overhang near Middle Creek forks below Burbidge, but maybe not quite right.

That’s it Chev. The old interpretive sign is just out of the frame.
