Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

So we have a couple of posters who claim to know where the picture is but won't divulge their knowledge (sort of like posting a scribble in the margin of "Arithmetica" that the answer won't fit on the page) and a whole forum full of potential candidates for posting the correct answer and getting to stymie the rest of us with a well-chosen picture.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok ... I am 100% certain that Nelson Dock was correct so with no one else around I'll post ....

Not going to be easy I'd think but we are in Australia, an island group within a National Park and surrounded by Marine Reserve. Yes we have anchored here but not I confess my pics.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There is an island group in Canada by the same name, indeed named after the same fellow.

East coast NSW.

The national park extends to the mainland.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

First white fella to see them was Cook who in what was a somewhat Cookian quirk missed the very large harbour close by. This was one of three large harbours Cook had managed to miss on his way up the NSW coast.
