Shown above is Tabletop Nature Reserve in New South Wales, Australia. This view is looking north at the spectacular southern end of the Reserve as seen from the Hume Highway, just north of Albury.

Created in September 1965, Tabletop Nature Reserve covers an area of 252 acres (102 hectares) around Loka Mountain, situated on the northern extent of the Great Yambla Range. These highlands provide a striking landscape of cliff faces and flat-topped peaks and form part of the Lachlan Fold Belt, a major fault sequence extending from central New South Wales through Victoria and into Tasmania. The local geology here is dominated by a conglomerate and sandstone sequences. Numerous caves and rock overhangs exist within the conglomerate sequence. Photo taken on January 14, 2016.
