There is a map on the COG website, see
'Crake Alley' is not specifically mentioned, but it is the area between
points 6 and 7.  If you stand on the raised ground by the casuarinas, you
are both hidden and can get a reasonable view over the area.


> Various COGites refer to "Crake Alley" at Kellys swamp. I still don't know
> what / where that is. The naming of the hides (I think that was Harvey's

> on the north side, among the casuarinas."
> Can someone provide a map or more definitive description please?
