Other thought was speculation maybe?

Thanks, GBW. It was very familiar but I don't have any photographs from around that area. Staying in VIC, what is this feature's name?

GregR, not a bad place to start. After you buy a duck, continue down the road a bit. This place is not a cave. It's name describes something other than a cave.

The duck was delicious, should have plucked and cooked it first though. still, live and learn.

Before I went to the aforementioned Byaduk caves I stopped at Budj Bim, but the part ,I suspect strongly that your picture was taken in , was closed.

GregR and Eremophila, yes it is in Budj Bim (previously Mt Eccles National Park). Pity that a section of it was closed when you visited Greg. Was that due to the very damaging 2019-20 bushfire? As a result of that, Tunnel Cave was closed.

https://www.abc.net.au/local/photos/201 ... 307642.htm

Tunnel Cave is at the northern end of Lake Surprise. My photograph is not at that end. And yes, Eremophila, it is part of a lave tube or lava canal. It is named on maps.

I'll Take the win but I'm sorta hoping that Eremophila might get in quick here as a consolation prize.

This ones in Victoria but most clearly not a cave!!

Where am I??

I'd be surprised if Eremophila doesn't know.

Hint: I recall the famous 1960's Philospher G Pyle most famous quote.." Surprise, surprise Sgt Carter..."

I may have to give Perigrinator the floor so I can I can focus on my pressing matters, like staring mindlessly at the TV or sleeping or yelling at the cat.

All yours P.

Not a river, but a Lake in a crater which is taken 20m from the previous cave shot!

Thank you Greg, I seem to have undeservedly acquired all three games for the moment. NSW:

Perhaps your earlier post about stumbling around the outlet of Lake Albina was in hindsight a clue!!

That's my guess anyway.

Good guess Greg. Yes, at the outlet of Lake Albina looking back at my descent route from Alice Rawson.
