That's interesting. Does anyone have any alternatives?

Roaring Meg is a small area of damp cool rainforest, full of leeches and moss, 
pretty different to most of the rest of the Prom. It's also got a good drop 
toilet, so if anyone wants to go check it out, it's an easy 15 km or so from 
the car park. I'd be fascinated to know what it might have been.
