New Year Island, just off the West Coast of King Island, you can see them from my Isle of Kings cache; http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... ?wp=GCKYE0

Shifta, that's too easy. If I get it right can I post an image?

Well done Astro - being a local probably helps.
<p>It was a place we visited quite a few years ago and one that we quite liked.</p>

Another sort of easy one - not an island, but close to one. Can you name that too?

thats not right belken, this location is the old joint defence facility Narungar (JDFN) just outside of woomera, SA. And the island that you are talking about is actually in the middle of salt flats (though I can't remember the name of it)

Correct - Nurrungar - not Pine Gap. Island lagoon was the spot close - almost posted that too - have a look at that (S 31° 24.283 E 136° 56.517 - this is the Cache Zone 39 - zoom out from this and look at the dot in the lake, then zoom in). I think this could have fooled a few ....

for more pictures of this base we shot last year, check out http://www.spaceschool.com/aiss/images/2005/index.htm .. I will take some year 11 students there again this year in October. If you have any interested year 11 people you know, let them know about the australian international space school. Fully funded trip up there from Adelaide. See spaceschool.com for more details.
