I reckon Faster is spot on. It's outside the RSL but you can't see the dock because its to the left of the cat.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Keep going North. It's well into Queensland.



This one is also from the campground. The previous photo was also late afternoon, and looking SW. The hills across the river in both shots is National Park.

In this one we are looking across the inlet then sandbar then the bay.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Phoa .... man that could be any number of Qld locales. Inside Fraser Island somewhere ?

Ref Jervis .... depends on size of boat and draft. There's a little inlet just north of Honeymoon with a few moorings but anything bigger than 35' no way and max draft 2.0m. Raven fully loaded was a tadge over 1.9m. We picked up the deepest mooring and that was OK but the one only a boat length close to shore had us scuffing the bottom at dead low. Most easterly off hole in the wall are tolerable, Huskisson horrible. The big beach not too bad NE but you need the right anchor. I don't know what is the right anchor but it most certainly is not a CQR.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Anyone who had camped there would recognise the 2nd photo right away. Everyone gets out their beach chairs and watches the sunset while sipping a beverage. :-)

At high tide the second photo is a broad expanse of water all the way from the photographer's feet across to the bay.

It's North of Fraser and near the last beach that gets any surf, before we get into the shelter of the Great Barrier Reef.

Not all that far from Turkey Beach.

There aren't many places near there that match the clues. :-) That was a May sunset. So we're looking almost due West from a campground across a sandbar to an open bay.

Okay, okay! It's within 50km of Turkey Beach.
