I think it is at the highest point of the mountain, another 100 or maybe 200 metres up from, and behind, the Desert Corps Memorial statue. Here is a pic from roughly the same spot, if I am correct, looking back towards the magnificient memorial.
And from the front and the plaque at the bottom explaining the history of the memorial. It has travelled a long way!
It was a windy day, and the vision was not nearly as clear as your pic Don.
But 20 minutes after I was at the top of the Mountain I was having a great swim at that beach just in front of those pine trees, Middleton Beach, at the Albany Surf Life Saving Club. The water was crystal clear despite the good surfing waves. The kite surfers were having fun nearby, and the little nippers were out training also, under the watchful eye of their instructors.
And the public change rooms on the side of the new club house had HOT showers. And they were still open at 6 am the next morning when I drove 30km back to Albany to retrieve my bathers, towel and goggles. They were still hanging up in the change rooms where I had forgotten them the evening before!

Yes, Princess Royal Fortress was the answer I was looking for, Sheppo. Sorry, if you thought I was being a bit technical Dave, but I figured that seeing each of you were on to the location pretty quickly, you would probably also know that the flag pole was in the grounds of the Fortress - and of course you did. Thanks for the additional photos and info Millsy.
Anywhoo, Dave was the first to post the location (by five minutes), so it's his turn again!
However, while we are talking about Albany - did any of you find the zigzag street going down Mount Clarence? I think it may have been called Earl Lane, but I'm not sure - I'm just trying to identify it from the map. It zigzags its way down a very steep pinch from a street above to a street below, and each zig and zag is only around two or three cars length (or felt about that). The houses located on the street each have an entrance off a zig or a zag. Makes the famous street in San Francisco look almost straight! ;D ;D ;D
If you've lived there Dave, I'm sure sure you know it. Dona Ricardo and I only found it by accident as we were poking around Albany.
I think this is in Winton, Queensland. Went through there about ten years ago. Bit of a guess. Just remember some weird 'ornaments' decorating the main street, and lots of big corrugated iron ornaments.
And well done on The Princess Royal Fortress. I reckon Dave got away with that one!
Up in the Atherton tableland near Ravenshoe somewhere, out from that blokes private aviation museum, buggar i haven't labled the pic. Oh well it's some one elses turn any way i been hogging this site. Sheppo
Looks like Clyde might be away getting more photos for us sheppo...... I reckon you're close enough to get the guernsey, it's at Millaa Millaa on the Atherton Tablelands, and I'll take up your offer to post the next one
Back on reply #131 I said I'd show you all the best rock pool IN THE WORLD ! ….which might have been a slight exaggeration because I do know of another one just as good as this one.
