    Weather looks lovely that day. Never seen it that balmy down there?

    Could vortex the molluscs out of the water just by looking at it.

    No. That’s a road!

    Sometimes folks carry inflatable crocodiles and ducks up and down this track.

    No.

    Near Mount Victoria in the way that Thredbo is near Perisher.

    Involves a bigger river than the Grose. And a higher mountain than Mount Victoria.

    I spent a fair few weekends at Mt Wilson during my canyoning phase! The drive just seems too far these day, getting old I guess.

    More sandstone:

    Been to a lot of snaky places, but that central tablelands area of Queensland takes the cake.

    Usually I work on the ratio, 9 out of 10 reptilian rustles will be of the lizardy variety. Out there, 12 out of 10 rustles were serpente', mostly elapids too. After one particular encounter in head high grass right on dark, my preference was to motor down the middle of waterway at all times.

    That's it exactly, photo taken from atop clean orange 'spire' on right of skyline in your shot.

    One of many scary sea cliffs along the Tasman.

    I climbed a few high peaks and sea cliffs in my time as climber, and always found the sea cliffs far more gut-churning. No retreating is what makes them so scary, I guess? None in Tassie but I managed a couple of visits to WCH, what a marvellous spot. Fabulous pic, @Rabid K9!
