Put this pic on an old thread, on the wrong day, so now I will have another go.
Where do you think this is?

You're spot on Rowdy. This shot is taken from the little path that is an off-shoot from the main track around the point.
Saw dolphins and a sea-lion there on a beautiful day, and Ros then walked down to Windy Harbour.
Lovely place.

Within 500km of a city with 5.5 millon people?

So gotta be in NSW.

But that's a huge area. This is a tough one.

A city of 5.5m, north and west of the Blue Mountains?
Singapore? :)

Half way there Jim.

It's Meath Gardens park in East London, taken last year. The flag is to remember King Cole, a member of the first indiginous cricket team to play in London. 10 years before the Australian cricket tours.

King Cole died while on tour. It is quite interesting. Normally the park is quite green as you would expect but with the drought last year it looked more like outback NSW

Well, I guess no one said it had to be in Australia .......

BTW London population is more like 8.7 million, LOL

You have now opened the doors to anywhere in the world for Pick This Place.

I feel it's gonna get a lot harder.

Well Tony, you have put us out of our misery at last. At least I had the population number close!!
“The current population of Singapore is 5,877,979 as of Tuesday, August 20, 2019, based on the latest United Nations estimates.”

Now I’ll have to look at my old Canada shots. :)

This one is now up for grabs......

It was an important rock for Aboriginals.....

Do you know its name and where it is?

So brains trust, lets stick to good Aussie locations

How did you find it so easy Paul?

There is a rough track to it, or you can do a short walk from the old ruins.

Might have cheated a little bit...... As I said I haven't been there

I guessed it might be in the Flinders because of your location & did a search through Google Images for rock outcrops.......... Took a while but I found you pic on an ExplorOz page.

Big Brothers watching us all & his name is Google !

That's why I haven't said it's name.

Hi Paul

If you are ever passing the area, it’s well worth the time to drop in and even if you do the short walk, it would be better if you had your van in tow.

Have you been to the Flinders Ranges before?

It is one of South Australia’s top tourist destinations and can highly recommend it.



Cheers

Yes, Stephen we have been to the Flinders Ranges before many years back now & most of our earlier trips were always a bit rushed because we had to fit them into school holidays, so we couldn't see everything.
Even spent 4 days in Leigh Creek Hospital..... but that's another story.......
I intend going again to catch up with what we have missed. We just returned from a trip to Arkaroola & along the Oodnadatta Track & surrounds. A favorite of ours.
We have spent a lot of time in SA over the years. Along all the Tracks, Gammon Ranges, Eyre Peninsula etc.
It's one of my favorite states to visit.
Cheers

OK It's

Death Rock andKanyaka Waterhole
It's off the Quorn-Hawker Road, past the Wirreanda Creek Bridge about
33 kilometres north of Quorn towards Hawker.

And I will be checking it out next time I'm up that way .....

PS I was Just watching a video on YouTube of Mike & Margie Leyland following the Old Ghan Route & they visit this site.... What a Coincidence !
