    I think it is the ridge leading up to Carruthers.

    But you could be playing me and you are coming down from Clarke, except Clarke is not that mellow.

    Let's go Clarke for no good reason I can think of right now.

    I suspect it's to the west of Lake Eildon, possibly in the former Fraser Park? judging by the landscape and what appears to be Mt Buller? on the horizon. But I don't know the area terribly well, so that's the best I can do.

    I reckon if Bogong said He was standing on one of "The Paps", He would be in with a chance.

    I reckon so too!

    Worth stopping for a walk or drive to the summit on a clear day, rather spectacular 360deg views.

    That's Buller in the distance..

    And as an aside, when You're driving down from Mount Stirling in the late afternoon and look out west down the valley. The Paps just look like My breasts in My avatar to the left.
    Thanks in advance for all Your nice comments.

    I just got the general area, which isn't hard as the Eildon landscape is so distinctive, Stansi is the one who actually identified the location. But it looks like Stansi wants me to post, so ...

    Yep. Built in 1927, it was the first building built by any ski club in Australia.

    I've gotta make my pics a little harder to identify!

    That's the easy bit.

    So what is either the range in the middle ground or any of the trans and / or lakes or the river in the foreground or what hill am I on?

    Oh no, what makes you think I actually go anywhere and take photos? :)

    Will try to find something a little obscure.

    Hmmm, where's this? Not obscure or remote though.
