  <header id="1" name="Kingston" walk="1 min" sun="Shady with some afternoon sun" rock="Sandstone" acknowledgement="By Paul Pritchard" intro="Whitewater Creek has easy access and fun bouldering in a suburban wasteland setting. On the whole the rock is OK quality, but dirty, coarse sandstone with a few soft patches. There are about 15 problems here at the moment with space for about 50-70, with a lot of cleaning effort. &lt;br/&gt;Problems are described left to right, i.e. furthest upstream first." history="" access="Access is via Bunnings roundabout in Huntingfield. Drive down to the roundabout in Springfield Estate and turn right onto Eldridge Street. Go to the end and take a right turn overlooking Whitewater Creek where you will see some short crags and boulders. Walk down about 50m to the crag." camping="" autonumber="true"/>

  <text id="109">Just north of the mouth of Brown's Rivulet at Kingston is a freestanding boulder perched on the hillside. The new Alum Cliffs track goes right past it. About half a dozen problems, the best being the prominent arête. There are a couple of other chunks of rock on the hillside.</text>
