No clue provided, it's just too popular of a spot, and many books have been written about it. And besides, any puzzle I've ever posted has been solved within a day.

Update: What In The World Happened Here? CXIII (113):

Remember the Albury incident where the DC2 was saved by using city lights to signal in Morse code?

Today is the 80th anniversary...

Story in Plane Talking, Its amazing story is told in gripping detail by Qantas QF32 captain Richard de Crespigny here.

Nobody has ever found any redeeming quality whatsoever in that town since.

Interesting tale! I had to go find WITWHH 113. Incredible Morse Code signals, and fun pulling an 8 ton aircraft out of the mud.

Confirmed solve, but Wagga is referring to a big holiday event at this location, rather than the world famous location. It appears that Wagga enjoys world class wine.

I'm assuming this refers to the (originally) unnumbered CLXXII (172)?

Yes, Wagga, that was CLXXII (172) you solved. I edited my post to insert the number for future reference.

Now on your new one...
