Tank Traps.
For those that don't know about them, here's a bit of information I found:-
"World War II resulted in fortifications against a possible amphibious assault by Imperial Japanese forces being installed along Stockton beach. Many of these fortifications, in the form of barbed wire entanglements and concrete pyramid shaped blocks, commonly known as tank traps, may be seen along the beach. Some of the tank traps from the northern end of the beach have been removed and relocated to near the parking area at Birubi Point in Anna Bay while most from the southern end of the beach may be found outside Fort Wallace in Stockton."

How'd I go?

EDIT: There wasn't that much of them showing when we found them.

Bit new to this, do I post a pic up now?

Bueaty mate, seeing there was a lot of WA pics I was going to share that info! Great spot especially after strong winds removing the tyre tracks and making for a good photo.

madcow,

They do look a bit like the Wallaman Falls, but no.

These falls are in the south east of Queensland. See how you go on that, with futher clues later.

These falls are on the southern downs, near the NSW border.

Now c'mon, that might be the Karunda train @ Freshwater Station, but I'm pretty sure the attraction is Melissa or Melinda, can't quite make out all the name on the tag tho!
