Contest #270 answer: Restoration Island, Queensland, Australia

Again a very hard one, this weeks contest.
The place I was looking for was Restoration Island, the fist landfall for Captain Bligh and his Bounty gang.
It is a national park and an uninhabited island, that is with the exception of one man, David Glasheen, who has lived there as a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ since 1993.

Contest #269 answer: Bosnian Pyramids, Visoko, Bosnia

There are some weird geological formations in this area, resembling the pyramids in Egypt.
Hence the name ‘Bosnian Pyramids‘. There has been some scientific controversial whether these pyramids are a natural geological formation or they are man-made.
Common science think the first.

This was a very hard one; kudos to Steve Willis for finding it before the hint was out!
