Hi VeloGiro.

The Geelong Botanic Gardens. I can smell the sea from here.

VeloGiro. "Well played." Thank you, you're are too kind. Well played? ... much played. After searching for the quiz, there appears to be more Boabs in Victoria than seen in the Kimberlys.

Where is my bike in NSW? Two images of the same campsite.

PS, The yards are very impressive and if you've ridden past them, you'll not ever forget them. In the top shot my bike can just be made out leaning against the rails. This is not a designated campsite, but it is a well camped-at site.

Obviously my location is too obscure, so I'll answer it.

The photos of the camp were taken on the Bicentennial National Trail, beside the Mount Rae Road, at Mount Wiligam on the great Dividing Range, half way between Crookwell and Taralga. The road runs along the spine of the Great Dividing Range and has no real hills to climb. The Mount Rae Road is a fine dirt road and a beautiful place to ride in the high reaches of the Wollondilly and Abercrombie Rivers.

Late afternoon, in the headwaters of the Wollondilly.

Please, someone else take a turn.

I reckon I've been there. Near Sheffield as I recall but too long ago so I could be wrong

Yes John, quite right - it's Mt Roland, and your memory is good, Sheffield is nearby.

Over to you to post a pic.

That's near enough.
It was actually a little downstream and the main fall isn't fully visible in that particular image.

So over to you.

Sticking with the Tasmania theme then, and heading further south.

Looks familiar. At a guess - I'd say it's the Hunter River from Nobbys Head
