    The river is of some interest to skiers and yes, it is the 90 mile beach.

    Here's one. Pardon the quality... taken with my DV video cam. Name the particular peak, centre of pic. Not just the range or locale.

    Aliens with very big genitalia and no need for Viagra?
    Mushroom Rocks, Baw Baw plateau?
    alternatively, in NSW, somewhere around Mt Dromodery?

    No, not Baw Baw. Yes, in NSW. No, not Glenn Innes although I can understand why you might think that. I reckon somebody will get this.

    Yes indeed VSG. Barrington Tops. Known as "The Rock" or as the locals call it "C**k Rock."

    Damn - I was just about to say "barrington tops, off the Dilgry Circle, just past the turn off onto Pheasants road, about 100m to the left of the road"...

    (I was mountain biking there back in April)

    VSG's is the peak out from Delegate. The name of which escapes me. Possibly Mt Delegate.Graeme's is the dunes at the back of Thurra River.

    Majik. Way, way, way off beam. The foreground vegetation should be a big clue.

    Think north. [​IMG]

    One of these, Majik. The one I've captured is one of the lesser photographed. Mount Beerburrum. [​IMG]

    Beerburrum means "Round Mountain" in the local dialect.

    Didn't recognise Beerburrum after all these years. Scrambled up all of them when I was a kid. Think I remember the others - left to right in VSG's pic: Tibrogargan, Beerburrum, Micketybumulgri (sp?) Coonowrin (aka Crook Neck) the two Coochins, then Beerwah.

    Coonowrin has had a climbing ban for some years now. The story goes that a mining engineer who was walking at the base of the cliff line became quite alarmed at compressive fractures in the trachyte. He convinced Qld National Parks to close the peak - could crumble at any time.

    Some more trivia:

    Imagine a line drawn throught the Glasshouse Mtns, the Warrumbungles in NSW running all the way down to Mt Gambier, SA and then out to some seamounts way down near Antarctica.. are evidence of a volcanic hotspot that Australia has been slowly moving over. I think Mt Warning is another.

    The hotspot is actually way down south, but Australia has been sliding, thanks to plate tectonics, gradually north, north east over the ages. And each of the above named features are eruptions or events during that time.

    At least that's how I remember my high school science. [​IMG]

    Here's one that will challenge many, I hope. All I will say is that its in the ACT.

    Name the leftmost, largest peak, please. And for bonus points, you can name the others that recede into the distance. [​IMG]

    Koko.. you are so funny. You cannot let go, it seems. The Brindabellas are in fact, somewhat north of viewable range. Viewable range has a different name. Brindabella ranges start further to the north.

    Three guesses for the photo of the pointy peak.
    Mt Cobbler near Buller, Mt Sturgeon or Mt Abrupt at the southern end of the Serra Range in the Grampians.

    closer. Yes, from the south. But wrong range. I will give in a bit, and say that generally, colloquially, the range pictured is called 'the Brindabellas'. Hint: NSW is immed. over the horizon. [​IMG]
