    Close. Parts are visible from this location, when it's not precipitating or windy.

    Here is view earlier in day, in other direction toward Hinchinbrook (sorry for the off level horizon, to busy watching for cro'diles with side eye).



    Good bag of mangrove jack & fingermark schnappers caught not far from this spot. Reckon I saw at least three drug smuggling boats as well....

    Really like the wet tropics of Qld. If you like to be hot & sweaty year round, along with being perpetually itchy from a million insect bites, it's the place to live in northern Australia, in my view.

    All very close. But original photo in question not actually taken or looking at an island, just those islands in the general proximity.

    Coastal.

    Photo taken looking at national park.

    Generally a very damp place, although hot & dry this time last year.

    To far north, although did have a eyeballing with some of Bob Kkkatters sheriff’s just before this.

    Apparently they don’t take kindly to people taking the piss out of their cowboy swagger.

    To south, but closest yet. Tropical coast full of these obscure, mostly estuarine systems.

    That's it. Interesting place.

    Just inside the heads, looking NW.

    Not many options left, the guesses so far have peppered all around it.

    Bingo!

    I found the entrances into the caves more interesting than the actual caves.
    I also found a snake next to the esky I had under the tree!
