Broadly defined, yes.

You've got the capsule off the Bolly.

You might want to think about sharing the Bolly with Lana, if you can find a woman with that name.

Time for a less cryptic clue. The name of the feature in question is shared by a creek, a spring, a small gorge and a copper smelter.

I gotta get outta town for a few weeks, so hand over to crollsurf. The location is Bolla Bollana Creek/Waterhole, less than 10 km west of Arkaroola.

All the hints make sense now, enjoy your trip away.

Here is one from NSW showing off NSW NPWS specialty for vandalising beautiful places by sticking up useless infrasucture. (note people on other side of fence)

I was actually here on Thursday and surprisingly people were remaining on the correct side of the fence. But it was a weekday and somewhat quieter.
I agree, what used to be a significant and impressive feature on the Coast Track is now a huge eyesore. And there are now two fences! The one in your photo and an almost complete fully stainless steel mesh job that would have to be the most expensive fence I've ever seen. Also now "graffiti'ed" end to end with huge warning signs etc, so it now looks twice as bad as in your shot. And it still won't keep them off!

Two fences!! :roll: Imagine if the holes they sunk to put up the fence created a fault line and caused the cliff edge to fall into the Ocean. :D

Similar thoughts crossed my mind when I saw all the holes now cored from the rock (twice!).

NSW. What feature are those on the left looking at?

Looks like I'm flying but I'm not :). Yes, Pulpit Rock (out of view below) is correct crollsurf.
I'm on the track to PR lookout, probably somewhere past Horseshoe Falls, with a fair bit of zoom.

That walk around to Pulpit is one of the best "bang for your buck" walks anywhere. Must walk it again after or while its raining.
More NSW and not too far away.

These falls are probably considered a little off the beaten track, although not far off it.
The track to them was closed for some time until recently.

Very close but no. I did visit them shortly after.

Correct Michael, with apologies to the late Dame Vera Lynn :). I'm pretty sure the falls are named after someone else.
