    Meaning the cascades above the falls on Jamison Creek? That would be my next guess too.

    That’s the one. The main path to the falls passes over this creek.

    None of the above but it the general area. The Castle is clearly visible in the distance. Tough walking to get to this location.

    Actually, maybe a bit futher over. Island mountain? Above that awesome canyon system. Did it burn? It was so choked with scrub that we gave up. Would love to go back into the canyons with no scrub!

    Good one! Drift hill it is. I seriously love that area. I’m surprised it’s not more popular.

    I've never been up there. Always gonna bash up there one day to take some nice picies of Thredbo and beyond with fresh snow - but always trying to ski it too.

    I don't have any pics so someone else jump in.
