I'm almost guaranteed that i guessed bridal veil falls!!! (at around guess number 70) Is there some requirement to have capitalisation with the wording etc?

Not that i'm complaining.....don't need another 2 stubbie holders.....only can hold one in each hand!

Mind you, the clue of "In NSW" wouldn't have helped most :-)

Yes mate, it's 'proper English'; proper nouns (place names in this case) start with capital letters in the comp. No slacko computerspeak allowed ;)

Aw shucks blush blush blush

An absolute fluke although I was certain re NSW and almost certain Blue Mountains.

Agsmky,
Yes the name does have to be capitalized correctly. Lost one early on in the comp with that problem.

Thanks Gramps for that "bummer"....I will have to watch out for this next time :-)

Strange that it jumped from about 75 (was about 65 before i saw the pick) to 120 in about 15 minutes!!!

You probably drink more than us, so it's all fair. (unless you like wearing hats that make you look like leyton hewitt (woops, Leyton Hewitt)).

'Our Lady of the Holy Pic' is conspicuously absent; perhaps she has ascended with the master over Easter!

Still here. Just watching. I knew the waterfall but not the lake. Also spent 2 weeks camped at Wonga Beach a few years ago.

I am not on hiolidays we have had a huge number of comps go off today - they were going off as fast as I was loading them. I am running out of submissions so how about you guys submit me some locations? it looks like I need a few hard pics so come on send in some new items for the comp. See the submission info on the comp page scroll down to the end - PS the GPS reference is really helpful or have a look in the Places Search and see of the correct place is already loaded - the maintenance of the comp take ages so all the help you can give the better.

Anyone can load data into the Places system however for the comps you are best to send them to me us as we can load the stuff without it being seen. However for places entry and photos anyone who is logged on can load data - We have had nundreds of images and places added to the database so thanks to all thise that have been updating the system thus far.

BTW: I have just made all of the maps work and now we can draw maps of all the places in the database and search using map searches - it is not release yet but will not be far away.

PSS: We have just about completed phase one of Caravan parks and are now working on free and feee based camps sites. If you have any photos of these places that would be great.

Enjoy.

I've been told I don't have a clue, so can I join the "clue free zone"?
