 Yes Gayle, Mason beach. About 30 sites, no power, water or showers but drop Point and drop toilets.

Very pretty spot, like Hamersley inlet it's run by the Shire of Ravensthorpe.

Thanks for that.  Haven't been there.  Was just going by the clues.  Now it's time for me to find a photo.  Haven't got a Pick this Place for ages. On which town's water tower would you find this bloke?  DSCN0354.JPGCheers.

Didn't now there was so many camp sites in the area, will go touring when time permits.

Assuming he was/is a goalkeeper for Australia. Is the water tank in NSW?

DSCN0356.JPGYes, it is Warren.  Went there in September 2022 and there was flood waters everywhere so went again last year and drove from Narromine to Warren along the river road, then onto Collie and across to Gilgandra.  Nevertire, which isn't all that far away also has a painted water tower.  In September I was trying to take photos with my camera whilst holding an umbrella to ward off thr swooping magpie.  Over to you The Travelling Dillberries.  PS.  A great Aviation Museum in Narromine.
