    I'll give you that. It's crossing the Mersey in Lee's Paddock. Still a private lease, surrounding by the WHA. Spectacular valley and place.

    The black-ish sand is a clue, Geology students from sMelbourne often go to 'beach' near here to study some unique uplift and layering.

    I'm not sure of the actual beach's name, it has no vehicle access and is only accessible from farm land or a nearby camp ground. Nearby public camp ground will do

    Spent many summer afternoons climbing here close enough to home to get a few hours climbing after work. Very shady and high enough to beat the summer heat. The base of the handrail made for easy belay anchors
