Synopsis: At Echo Point in the Blue Mountains, lovers Jack (Harry Cantor) and Jill (Margaret Jackson) begin their quest to find a £500 cheque hidden in the area. They proceed along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk followed by other sightseers and treasure seekers. They pass by the Three Sisters. ‘Uncle Leo and his Californian yodelling hikers’ join in the fun and, with the gathering crowd, sing and saunter by the rippling waters of Leura Cascades. A man plays a piano accordion atop a rock outcrop. Jack and Jill and assorted questing hikers wave to each other across the Jameson Valley.
