    Close. More detail please. I'm looking for a very specific well known location on the river.

    My canoeing started with the Illawarra canoe club in the 70's. Those double Canadians bring back many wonderful memories.

    Nothing yet. Hint, its just below a place with a very Scottish sounding name (IMO).

    Nice to see the Snowy flowing hard prior to daming. With Gungarlin flowing unimpeded the Snowy from Island Bend downstream to the Jindi dam looks great, deep and biting.

    An easy one. Didn’t have an obscure one on hand.

    What peak? Bonus for where I am.

    Rocky, steep, possible structure on top; I'd have to guess Coree.

    edit: from Two Sticks Rd

    Hmm, I was initially thinking Coree, but the vegetation looked a little dense. Didn’t notice the potential structure

    (Gingera directly up from Pryors, then north-south along the top, is not that steep and actually a pretty nice way to do the walk!)

    Not Gingera, but a worthy location.

    Different rock type to Coree.

    Correct territory.

    Just remembering the big cairn on Gudgenby so I'm that's my second guess? Doesn't quite look like from the saddle though.

    If that's correct you know the spot @mr. I just took a punt based on the round nature of the rocks and the outback setting. Have never been there.
