I wish to upload a photo of a Canyon in Mount Olga, Northern Territory, Australia.
Not being a city, but a mountain, I was wondering what should I put in place of the name of the city...

When I do scenery in the Rocky Mountains I use the closest city to where the photo was taken and then the country. Gone OK so far.

Yes you do need to be very careful, I have just had 2 resubmit based on description! the only thing I can see different to the other 5 of the same subject and description is that the inspector wanted the city to be Gold Coast as opposed to Surfers Paradise, which is what we in Oz know it at.
I'd suggest trying the Australia Post web site for the post code, Google Maps may also help, check that the name is Mount and not Mt! I had a resubmit for that too at the end of the day fingers crossed, could be worst! it's not the picture just the words

The official examples of a good captions includes one shot at the top of a mountain in Nepal, which uses a district (Solukhumbu) in place of a city.
There are also many editorial photos of Antartica which has no city.
Another official Korean example gives Panmunjom as the city, buy according to Wikipedia "the empty village of Panmunjom fell into disrepair and eventually disappeared from the landscape. There is no evidence of it today. ... It should not be confused with the Joint Security Area (JSA) nearby, where discussions between North and South still take place in blue buildings that straddle the Military Demarcation Line."
