yes IT IS RED HILL !!!!
CONGRADULATIONS @Spletsie

this photo was a taken of a siding of the turntable,
to find this walk towards merrics from red hill after about 2 minuets of walking you'll find on your left, a depression in the land. long over grown the remains of the turntable and 2 opposite facing concrete blocks embedded in the depression. the one furthest from the rail trail has an over grown cutting, follow that cutting and wala you find the remains of a buffer in a siding!

Not Wonthaggi.

It's to the south of Winton, but to the north of Oaklands and Wonthaggi.

Obviously not south of Winton, Victoria.
South of Winton are Tatong, Molyullah, Lima South, Barjarg, Mansfield et al.

Do you perhaps mean that this place's latitude is further south than that of Winton? If so, the place will be east south east of Winton if it's in NSW.

The thought did cross my mind !

Sorry guys. I assumed the guess at Winton meant Winton in Queensland.

So, just to clarify, the latitude is to the south of Winton in Queensland and to the north of Winton in Victoria.
