Chris, that'd be Mt Wedge, about 30km East of Elliston on the Birdseye Hwy in SA.

The lady wasn't so formally dressed when I saw her in '04

Well done Dave

Big hint.
It looks tropical, and is in a type of tropical rain forest, but a long way from the Tropics!


Another hint, just around the corner from the above photo.

Unc


P.S. That pic of the lady in the plane should go to the Roadside Art thread too mate....
No Unc.

A lot further south, in fact one of our best keet secrets, runs through a small beautiful National Park, a great road that alternates from tar to dirt with some stunning country.

Haven't heard of the Roadside Art thread, will go looking for it.

Why it's Marree Man, somewhat faded with time, 60 kms west of Marree SA.
Discovered from the air back in 1998

My guess is somewhere on the Nunnett track that runs from Omeo to Buchan.
Not Bentleys Plains ?
Just down from the Washington steam engine.
