Not Capertee.

Occasionally a brumby will be seen in the area. Lots of roos. I took this pic at sunrise.

Another clue.

There is a restored hut very close to this area. The location is not the snowy mountains or anywhere near.

Brumbies, roos, a restored hut, some flat land and views up to an escarpment suggests that you are at the Kedumba River Crossing.

Nice work ribuck.

Yes it was early morning at the camping area at Kedumba River Crossing.

I'm looking over once farmed grassland towards the fold in the land caused by Waterfall Creek, the view rising to the walls lining Lions Head Ridge, Kedumba Pass and beyond.

Kedumba Slab Hut is 200 metres or so to the NNW of my location.

There were plenty of roos and a brumby was seen cantering over the grassland in the evening.

Thanks wildwanderer. This one is in the Northern Territory. Maybe eggs will agree to give others a 48-hour head start on this one...

No, Zapruda, but I'm in the same park (Tjoritja/West MacDonnell NP).

Not Serpentine Gorge, commando, although you are closer than the previous suggestion.

It's not Ormiston Gorge, but you could walk there from Ormiston Gorge in four hours.

This photo is taken from two hundred metres further upstream:

Nice work, commando.

There's no official name, but some of the Ormiston Gorge rangers call it Waterfall Valley. East coast bushwalkers tend to call it Canyon of the Thirteen Pools, a name assigned in 1972, when Dot Butler wrote:

"I went up the north tributary of the Ormiston River, which developed into a steep rocky canyon, and I counted the pools which appeared to be permanent. There were 13, the last quite a deep circular pool in an amphitheatre at the base of a 100 ft. high dry waterfall chute. Digby [Frank Rigby], who has a talent for coining telling names, called this the Canyon of the 13 Pools"

Yes Greg, had a nice stroll around there a few months back during one of my post lockdown getaways.

Thanks John, I used to go fishing there maybe forty years ago, it was a good spot to cast into quite deep water fairl easily but you certainly hsd to keep a constant watch on the incoming waves, someone told me it is now a National Park.
Next post is still in NSW.

NPWS have it listed as a geological site Greg but their involvement is unclear. Locals can walk dogs there so maybe a proposed regional park?

This one vaguely reminds me of a distant view of Fairy Falls on the Empire Pass near Dantes Glen.

The stand of Acacia Elata in the foreground is a clue, and here's the falls from below, not all that big but quite dainty and pleasing, maybe thats why they are called Fairy Falls. John, you have chosen wisely. Over to you.

Thanks Greg, I've crossed them many times. I partially matched a distant photo of mine from a slightly different angle but wasn't 100% certain.

NSW again. Where did I plant my $20 hiking pole last week?

No, but not far off Greg. I was originally heading up there but changed my plans on approaching it.
There were too many people already on Townsend and I hadn't visited this nice alternative for many years.
