This is a rock formation on the side of the main Highway near Uralla, NSW, known as " Thunderbolt’s Rock " as it was used by an Aussie Bushranger called Captain Thunderbolt to survey the land for potential victims to rob and also to make sure no police were on the way to get him ! His real name was Frederick Ward and he died in 1876 at 36 years of age. His grave is in the cemetery at Uralla. The locals have graffitied it terribly and have ruined the look of it, but I took the shot anyway for it’s historical significance.
