Yes . In the Buds.
No. Go SouthWest
Correct.Taken from the upper knoll on the West Ridge 2 weekends ago.
Im thinking a dam, like behind Baremans Bay coast
Wrong State, not a dam.
Fascinating place. My partner did her architectural thesis on it, but its more interesting because of its strange role in celebrating the use of australian plants in regeneration, and then inadvertantly the indig plants movement in vic (as it used non indig plants), and also is one of Bill Gammage's sites where he 'gammaged' von guerard paintings to consider the presettlement veg profiles against now. I neglected to mention an aural history of its formation ~30k YA.
I was fortunate enough to spend some time on Gunditjmara country with the traditional owners and was privileged to visit a few 'secret' sites. Man, the natural and cultural history of the far SW of Vicco is amazing.
Name of the side country run on that face in the middle ground (under the ridge) Clear as mud?
I visited for the first time about 4 years ago, I didn't even know it existed, almost embarrassing for a Victorian. Heaps of wildlife, great walks and picnic areas, well worth a minimum of a full day visit.
Reckon that's just the last ridgeline of Aus Drift area - not sure if it has a name. Taken prolly from Women's Downhill area/Higgi with Blowhard and the Twins obviously in the background.
Isnt that the Womens Downhill Ridge ?
it is, over to you.
pretty sure pink hamberg is the other side of the road west of the resort boundary.
its making me snow-sick that pic.
womens downhill is such a great run, 3 or 4 clear sections (through trees at the top out to the open glade, and the next glade, then the dog leg left, and into the last long gully to the floor) with a very civilised exit climb. I've wanting to do the obvious line on the other side, under the bigD snowfence, straight run through the trees.
Indeed. I love that area. It's kinda unreal that none of the south facing bowls at Hot-ham got a lift. I know there's nothing beginner or really even intermediate in Dargo, Aus Drift, Avalanche or Woman's but sheesh the terrain is amazing.
sorry, small hijack with a pic looking at other side of womens - the straight tree line
Far from snow
Near the confluence of what 2 streams ?
feels a bit coastal - are they buildings up there i can see?
No buildings here . Im after the 2 streams that meet here.
Corang is one of the streams. And the other one ?
Close enough. Its actually at nearby Canowie Brook Junction at a spot known as the Rock Ribs. Over to you @ecowain
Ah yes, I think that's what I meant. Is Canowrie the one that comes down from burrumbeet camping caves?
What beach? And what “peak” on the right.
Did she go of her own accord?
You forced her?
No idea what you're on about.
The town in the distance sounds like forced-'er.
Seven mile beach and booti booti national park.
Your go, yes 7 mile beach. The peak is Hawke trig, but nothing 200m os really a peak...
I dont have anything so someone else jump in.
Name of the hill centre background please.
All class and correct sir.
