    Kaputar national park it is, with Narrabri behind my back. Was after the name of prominent volcanic terrace to the left in the photo.

    This should be clue enough;

    Sidey was your Wurrumbungle photo taken from the Coolah - Premer rd about 10 kms from Coolah. I love driving home ( Snowies to north coast) up the guts of NSW,thru the Liverpool plains - you get to see how the country is doing, and there is a whole lot less coppers, trucks and all round traffic.

    Brilliant..... went on the Abt Railway when it first opened back in 2000 or 2001 \ [​IMG]

    So thought it looked very west coast Tassie, but didn't want to go with the more obvious Gordon / Franklin.

    Off to look for a picture... be right back

    The pink tinge in the rock was a bit of a give away.

    Please jump in with a photo if you have one handy, as I have none with me at work.
