Thanks Tyreless. One of a number of historic kitsch objects around the Blue Mountains.

With a clue like that, it ought to have a name like Bellbird Wood or Lyrebird Forest. And yet, I have a niggling feeling that it might be near Beauchamp Falls.

You're definitely on the right track re the clue ribuck. It's not anywhere near Beauchamp Falls. Same general region but less altitude.

The big fall to the left of that must have had a good flow - my shot of yours has no water in it.

Curious - the main fall is the Dandongadale Falls - highest sheer drop in Vic.
This is a smaller stream next to it - but I saw it dry.

Next in Vic

Well "up" the road would put it better. The little Yaris was struggling on the road to the lake.
Yes - this is the magnificent Cobbler at sunset.

I don't recognise this one but the size, shape and locality remind me a little of the Botherum Plain hut.
It isn't that but maybe in that general area?
