Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Clearly Dear Old Raven.... I suspect Splatt has it, but I think that's closer to the (unnamed?) island at the mouth of Jervis Bay...

EDIT: actually more probably Silica Cove...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sure looks like Point Perpendicular in the background, but my guess is that the boat is anchored off Point Pleasant (Vicentia), rather than the shelf closer to Huskisson, based on the orientation of the exposed rocks. Never would have figured this out on my own. Looks like MattSplatt knows this area.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yeah... Silica Cove is too close.. somewhere around/between Huskisson and Vincentia like Splatt suggested looks better distance wise...

Looks like a primo spot to hang out and whalewatch!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Bowen Island is the one at the mouth of Jervis Bay.

I haven't been to many places, but I figured if I was on the ball, TDW would eventually post something I recognised right away. :-D

It's obviously Point Perpendicular, I didn't visually recognise the exact rock shelf, but the relative positions of the two headlands (Point P. and the nearer, lower one) puts the photo at Vincentia. So can I have a go? :-)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Huh... we have a Bowen Island here too - probably named for the same guy... much more inhabited than yours.

I'd say you could go ahead.. Fire away. - But it's going to be a bit slow, most of the rest of the world has gone to bed!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not many people living on this Bowen Island, no. :-)

(Gone to bed!? Don't they know there are games to play on the 'net?)

Going quite a way North...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Jervis it is ... Raven moored off Huskisson. Not Valencia but that's only a mile or so away.

Nice spot Jervis Bay , only problem is that there are very few really protected anchorages and it's a mongrel of a place in a hard nor easter.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Much further than Port Stephens.

I've wondered about Jervis Bay in a Nor' Easter. I don't have a proper boat (only a canoe) and it's bloody dreadful even on the beach in a decent NE breeze. I often figured there's probably somewhere on the N side to shelter. Is there? or is it all too low/shallow on the N side? I haven't holidayed on the N side, only Greenpatch and Husky.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Can't find the estuary name, but perhaps Dunbogan?

EDIT: Camden Haven River?
