A jump up, is where you are driving along a plain and go up a rise to another level and stay at that level, it is like a minnie tableland. Normally only a max of a couple of hundred feet in elevation.

Have a good on.

Pretty much as the phrase says One Way Ticket.

Where a ground level changes to a higher level.
Often at a convient place to drive up to the new height.

Many groups use it as a generic term , like a plateau.
I was surprized when a family member said he would meet us at the top of the jump up in Knox City shopping centre - he meant at the top of the escalator.

In our field of motocross racing its a part of the track with a steep slope to the next level.
You ride up a ramp at speed and you jump 50 ft and when you land its on the new higher level , hence jump-up.

Jump-up also refers to what Americans call a mesa. Such as you may see in what is known locally as the jump-up country between Winton and Boulia QLD.

That's not a Jump Up...thats just a hill ,

There's a beauty just west of Maree .

Someone show him a real jump up

The best I can do is a google shot of Bang Bang jump up between Burke & Wills Roadhouse and Normanton.

Jump ups used to be a popular diversion for road train drivers.

Many on busy routes have had the gradient reduced to avoid having to have an extra prime mover or dozer handy.
