Correct, from the Walls Ledge track overlooking Centennial Glen and the Kanimbla Valley.
Mt Blackheath section of Shipley Plateau in the background. Take it away.

That caused me some very disturbing mental images Greg (assuming tongue-in-cheek :wink:) but no, I was referring to Mermaids Cave off the Megalong Road.

Thanks Johnw.

This one might be a bit challenging unless you have walked along this NSW waterway and seen this slightly disturbing piece of art.

I remember seeing similar "art", but only one skull, years ago on the Shoalhaven at Bungonia.

I don't recall seeing that specific peice of art, but the waterway looks a lot like the Coxs / Jenolan confluence.

There are no platypus skulls there. The 2 smaller ones look like wombats or similar. The larger one I think is a pig. Not sure what the ones in profile and on the ground are. Platypus skulls are very distinctive and much smaller.

I think it's further downstream. I'll hazard a guess at it being on the Coxs near Merrigal Creek.

ribuck has it.

The tree and decorations were spotted in a grassy clearing along the banks of the Cox River. Blue Dog Buttress is above.

Merrigal Creek is about a km or so as the crow flies further downstream.

Photo was taken last year pre flood, so whether the art remains is unknown.

I'm also curious as to what animals the skulls belonged to. Thanks Last for providing some insight.

I suggest that jonnosan goes next if desired, as his guess is next closest.

Johnw got it right, it's Ellery Creek Big Hole - but from the north (upstream) end.

Less than 500 metres to the road end, but almost 3 hours by foot. Some will swim it.

Thanks ribuck, something of a surprise even though my research seemed to line up.
I had mentally conceded it to eggs, being aware of his travels in that region, including with yourself.

Mowbray Falls. I walked the Bump Track in 2013 but didn't take the side trip to Mowbray Falls.

Correct Tyreless, aka Big Mowbray Falls. Definitely worth taking the side trip if you revisit.

Thanks John - next time I'm there I'll make the side trip.

Back to NSW (apologies to all but I haven't traveled much recently).
